Swimming

Relatively safe during low waves and at high tide. However, watch the rocks and reefs at low tide and rips when waves are breaking.

Surfing

During strong westerlies there are some waves at high tide over the reefs.

Fishing

Good gutters run out along the reefs and rocks at each end.

General

A difficult to find beach used mainly by locals and the boat owners.
