Storm Bay is a small, 100 m long platform beach located 500 m due west of the Pyramid Rock car park. The beach is surrounded by 20 to 30 m high grassy bluffs, with a boulder beach underlying and backing the narrow sand beach. Basalt boulder flats front the beach. It is only awash at high tide, with surf running over the boulders and reefs at low tide.

Swimming

This beach is unsuitable for bathing, unless conditions are calm and it is high tide.

Surfing

A right hander breaks over the boulders at high tide. However, watch the abundant rocks and boulders.

Fishing

There are a number of exposed rock platforms on either side of Pyramid Rock, however take care, as waves wash over the rocks, particularly at high tide.

General

It is well worth the drive and walk to Pyramid Rock; however, Storm Bay is only for experienced surfers and rock fishers.
