The eastern half of the beach (T 535) continues east of the jetty for 500 m as a curving north-facing low energy reflective beach that has a deeper hole in the eastern corner, with shallow sandy bay floor extending 200 m offshore then the deepwater of the bay (Fig. 4.92). It is backed by a low foredune, and then low wooded terrain, and is bordered in the east by a small dolerite point on the eastern side of which is the pocket beach T 536. This is a 50 m long east-facing boulder beach fronted by a sandy low tide terrace. It is more exposed and receives waves averaging up to 1 m, which break over the rocks off the northern point and across the 50 m wide sandy terrace producing a right-hand break during higher swell.
