Jetty is a continuous, 600 m long beach that begins as Mothers Beach in the western protected corner, then changes to Scout Beach in the centre and ends in the east as Shire Hall Beach. Beside the jetty at Snapper Point are a large car park, marina and boat ramp, with a 10 m high bluff backing Mothers Beach. At Scout Beach there is a scout hall and a few boat sheds below the bluffs, while at Shire Hall there are several boat sheds.The beach faces north and is sheltered in the west by the point and jetty. A continuous bar fronts Mothers and Scout Beaches. However during strong north-westerlies, sufficient waves reach the beach to build a bar and two rips toward the eastern Shire Hall Beach.

Swimming

Safest at Mothers and Scout Beaches, so long as you are clear of the boat traffic. Water depth varies over the bars and troughs at Shire Hall, and care should be taken if children are using the beach.

Surfing

Strong west to north-west winds can produce waves over the bars at Shire Hall.

Fishing

Best off the jetty or the rocks at the end of Shire Hall.

General

An attractive, accessible beach with a foreshore reserve and picnic facilities. A choice of three beaches in one.
