Beaches 320 and 321 lie on either side of Klein Point, whose backing bluffs are quarried for limestone, with the mine operations, stockpile, breakwater and jetty located between the two small beaches. The northern beach (320) is 100 m long and hemmed in between the bluffs and the jetty seawall and backed by the mine operations.

General

None of these beaches are suitable for recreation owing to their usually difficult access down the bluffs, the dominance of rocks on some, and the mining operations at Klein Point.
