Beaches BI 24 and 25 are located either side of Arched Island on the southern side of Mangana Bluff (Fig. 4.102). The linear rocky 30 m high island is linked to the shore by a lower wave-washed rock ridge with beach BI 24 extending for 150 m either side of the ridge. It is a high tide cobble beach backed by a steep V-shaped valley, with waves averaging 1 m on the more sheltered northern side of the island and over 1.5 m on the exposed southern side. Rocks also lie off the beach. Beach BI 25 lies 100 m to the south and shares the 100 m wide surf zone that continues south of the island. The beach is 150 m long and composed of a strip of high tide cobbles at the base of densely vegetated 50 m high slopes. Waves break across the sand and rock-dotted surf zone with a rip usually running out between the two beaches.
