On the south side of the groyne is Point Bunbury Beach. This is a 500 m long strip of sand backed by a low dune and the golf course, and fronted by a continuous rock platform and reefs. The beach is awash at high tide while the platform is exposed at low tide. The beach ends at the mouth of the Barham River in Mounts Bay.

Swimming

Bathing is only possible at Borrow Beach, however be careful here as there are rocks and a permanent rip present.

Surfing

No rideable waves.

Fishing

Both top fishing spots, however be careful on the point as the rocks are awash at high tide and in big seas.

General

Two very accessible but rock dominated beaches, mainly used for fishing.
