East of Steele Trig, the coast trends east for 2 km to Grassy Point, then turns to the south-east for 2.8 km to Point George. Here it turns again, to the south-south-east, for 900 m down to Half Moon Bay. There are three beaches located between these points. The Esplanade and foreshore reserve back the beaches, and there is a camping area on the eroding beach front south of Point George.The three beaches are all narrow and crenulate, with low (1 to 2 m high) backing bluffs, and 100 to 200 m wide sand flats. Seagrass grows on the deeper parts of the sand flats and washes up onto the beaches.

Swimming

Three relatively safe beaches, with usually calm to low wind waves. Water depth over the shallow sand flats depends on the tide.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

You can only fish from the beach at high tide.

General

Three very accessible beaches, with Point George housing a popular, beach front camping reserve.
