Point Leo is a 20 m high, basalt bluff with a continuous sand beach at its base, and reef flats exposed at low tide. The Point Beach is 200 m long and faces south, but is partially protected by the extensive reef flats and offshore reefs known to surfers as The Peak. The foreshore reserve covers the point and includes camping and picnic facilities.

Swimming

Not recommended, with the abundance of rock and reef on either side of the beach. Rips run out against the reefs when the surf is breaking. Swimming is safer at the adjoining bay or patrolled surf beaches.

Surfing

There are two breaks here: The Point, a right hander on the eastern side of the point; and The Peak offshore.

Fishing

A popular spot off the beach at high tide, or from the rocks and reef flats at low tide.

General

The focal point of Point Leo is the point itself. The beach is better suited for sunbathing, while the surf, when running, is for more experienced surfers.
