Granite Point marks the beginning of a 2.5 km long section of east-facing rock and sand shoreline that forms the Bridport shoreline, extending south to the small trained mouth of the Brid River. Beach T 1228 is located in amongst the rocks 200 m east of the point. It is a 100 m long strip of high tide sand and rocks, grading into a low tide terrace with rock outcropping across and off the beach. Beach T 1229 lies 50 m to the east and is a 40 m long pocket of sand bounded by the sloping granite rocks, with rock reefs extending 100 m offshore. Both beaches are backed by the road out to the point car park, then houses on the backing tree-covered slopes.

Swimming

The eight Bridport bay beaches are all usually calm with a low hazard rating. Beware however of the many boulders along the beaches and the tidal channel and currents at the river mouth. Adams Beach offers the only surf and is more hazardous with rips occurring when waves exceed 0.5-1 m, particularly at low tide.

Surfing

Adams Beach usually has beach breaks during westerly swell.
