Swell Point is the name of the next platform and is a smaller version of Marengo, with 50 m of access to the water between them. It too is next to the sewer outlet.

Swimming

These four beaches are all sheltered from large waves. Marengo and Swell Point are relatively safe in a physical sense, but they can be polluted by the sewer and may not be suitable for bathing. The Storm Point beaches are dominated by rocks and only offer tidal pools at low tide.

Surfing

The reefs at Marengo, called Infinities, provide left and right handers during moderate to high swells. They are the only rideable waves along this rocky section of coast.

Fishing

This is a very popular stretch of coast for fishing, with both the beaches and rock platform giving good access to holes and gullies.

General

This is a nice section of coast for a walk or fishing, but is unsuitable for bathing or surfing.
