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.
