Rice Beach (T 146) is located in a small east-facing rocky bay on the southern side of Bicheno. The 100 m long beach faces east out of the bay and receives low refracted waves averaging about 0.5 m. The waves surge up a moderately steep reflective beach composed of coarse sand and gravel, with several large rock outcrops along the beach. It is backed by vegetated slopes and houses.

Swimming

Waubs Bay offers the safest swimming, while if swimming at Redbill stay at the lower energy southern end. The northern spit end can be dominated by strong rips. Diamond Beach is relatively safe, particularly when connected to the island, however it is isolated.

Surfing

The northern end of Redbill, also known as Surf Beach, is the best location to find ridable beach breaks, with the north side of Diamond Island providing a right-hand break during bigger swell.
