Nutgrove Beach (T 454) commences 100 m future south and extends 700 m east to the rounded tip of the low Sandy Bay Point (Fig. 4.79), a 300 m wide sandy foreland that is now heavily developed. The beach faces north up the Derwent and consists of a steep narrow high tide beach, with deep water and boats moored 50 m offshore. It is backed initially by bayfront houses, then a yacht club and Sundown Park and Long Beach Reserve, the latter protected by a basalt seawall.
