Freers Beach (T 1162) curves from the southern rocks of Taroona Point for 1.7 km to the south, then southeast to the 500 m entrance of the more constricted inner entrance to the port. A road parallels the back of the beach, with several seawalls and groynes crossing the beach, including one at the southern end (Fig. 4.258). It is usually calm, with a narrow, in places eroding, high tide beach. Intertidal sand flats extend up to 1 km into the port and at spring lows link with Penguin Island, 1.2 km offshore (Fig. 4.259). A narrow coastal reserve and road back the beach, with a few houses behind the centre of the beach. The Port Sorell Surf Life Saving Club, was founded in 1986 and is located at the northern end of Freers Beach.
