Old Man Rocks is a 100 m long series of granite rocks and reefs, which extend off a small 100 m long headland. On the southern side of the headland is a 50 m long pocket of sand (T 85). The beach is bordered by bare granite rocks, with an outcrop off the centre of the beach and sandy gutters to either side. It faces southeast into the prevailing waves, which average over 1 m and break over the rocks and into the two gutters. A campsite and vegetated slopes are located behind the beach.
