Beach 14 is a curving 300 m long east-facing reflective beach bordered by low basalt points, with a solitary rock outcropping toward the southern end of the beach. Seagrass meadows lie 50-100 m off the shore. Vegetating transgressive dunes from beach 13 reach the back of the beach and have supplied sand to the system.

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.
