Mattingleys Beach (T 1232) lies 500 m further south and is a 60 m pocket of sand surrounded by blufftop caravan park and camping area. Croquet Lawn Beach (T 1233) is 100 m long and located 100 m to the south at the southern end of the camping area, with a boat ramp across the southern end of the beach. Both beaches are bordered by sloping granite points and backed by the tree-covered slopes of the reserve. They face west and are usually calm, except during easterly winds and waves.

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.
