Spiky Beach (T 206) is a 100 m long east-facing moderately protected reflective beach, bordered by dark dolerite slopes, with rocks also outcropping in the centre and extending off the southern end of the beach. It has a low narrow grassy foredune, and a moderate gradient beach face, which usually slopes into deeper water. A short walking track leads from the car park to the beach. Beach T 207 is located immediately to the south and is a 70 m long sand beach bordered by rocky points, with a cluster of rocks in the centre of the beach. Lafarelle Gully, when it flows, crosses the centre of the small beach. The beach is slightly more exposed and a more hazardous beach with rocks dominating the surf.
