East of Grossard Point the coast trends east-north-east, fronting the holiday settlement of Ventnor. The beaches are highly crenulate, owing to the predominance of low bluffs and extensive reef flats. Both beaches receive low waves and are relatively narrow and steep, with no bar or surf. Rather, reef flats are exposed at low tide. Low dunes back much of both beaches, particularly away from the bluffs. Boat Creek drains across the northern end of Elizabeth Cove, and a few tinnies are stored on the dune behind the beach.There are car parks at both ends of Elizabeth Cove and at the northern end of Ventor Beach.

Swimming

Relatively safe and best at high tide when the rocky reef flats are covered.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

You can fish the reef flats off the beach at high tide, or wander out onto the reef to fish deeper water at low tide.

General

Two long, narrow, crenulate beaches, most suitable for sunbathing and swimming at high tide.
