On the point the coast turns 900 and trends south for 100 m to Sultana Point (Fig. 4.89) then southwest toward Wattle Point and on towards Tourbridge Point. Between Sultana and Wattle points is a 2 km long southeast facing beach (336), largely protected by the 5 km wide Tourbridge Shoals. The beach is sandy, narrow and steep, with 50 to 100 m wide sand flats, then a mixture of seagrass meadows and the more tide dominated outer tidal shoals. A 3 m high foredune and gravel roads runs along the back of the beach, but there is no development.

Swimming

Only at high tide when the sand flats are covered.

Surfing

None.

Fishing
