On the south side of the low St Leonards bluffs, the coast trends almost due south for over 5 km to a series of recurved spits at Edward Point. The Esplanade runs behind the first 2 km, with a camping area on the beach just south of St Leonards. A picnic area, boat ramp and a second camping area are situated just before the 10 m high bluff section. On the south side of Red Bluff are another boat ramp and the yacht club, with several wooden groynes crossing the crenulate beach. The southern 3 km are part of Point Edward Wildlife Reserve and are backed by Swan Bay.
The low narrow beach is fronted by 100 to 200 m wide sand flats with low amplitude bars. Bathing is better at mid to high tide, with the inner portions of the flats exposed at low tide.
Better at high tide when the flats are covered.
A long beach with numerous facilities between Red Bluff and St Leonards, and a rich wildlife reserve in the south.Read less
