At Hayley Point, the coast swings to the south-west and is dominated by a series of protruding sandstone rock platforms and reefs. These are divided by small beaches that extend 2.5 km from the point to The Blowhole. They are only accessible via Marengo, with a walk along the rocks required to reach the southern beaches.
The first beach is called Marengo after the name of the settlement on Hayley Point, and is accessible via a road that runs around the point to the rear of the beach. The beach faces east, is 150 m long and is tucked in between two rock platforms with some reefs off the beach. It receives waves averaging 0.5 m and has a steep, barless beach with deep water close inshore. However, it is also the site of a sewer outlet.
Beach Length: 0.15km
