Beach 15 lies 100 m to the south and is a similar 500 m long steep reflective east-facing beach, which curves between low basalt points. It is backed by a well developed 10 m high foredune, then grazing land, with a cluster of houses behind the more densely vegetated southern end of the beach and extending onto the southern point.

Swimming

The only safe beaches on the western side of the island are the northern Mitlers and Snug Coves. The exposed beaches are all extremely hazardous, with large waves, permanent rips and some reefs.

Surfing

The best chance is at False Creek, with some point breaks also off Carrington Point and Mitlers Cove. However, local knowledge is essential.

Fishing

There are good beach rips at False Creek, while rock fishing is extremely hazardous on the western side.

General

A dramatic, high energy section of shore, in places impossible to safely access.
