On the southern side of Martha Point is a 100 m pocket of sand and cobbles, lying at the foot of steep, 40 m high, vegetated bluffs. It is fronted by a band of intertidal cobbles and rock, with a sandy bay floor lying beyond the rocks. Marine Drive passes around on the bluffs above the beach, while a walking track from Safety Beach to the point provides the best access.The beach faces south-west and is well exposed to westerly winds. The beach is narrow and steep, with usually low waves at the base of the beach and some surf over the bay floor during strong south-westerlies.

Swimming

Moderately safe during low winds and waves, however watch the rocks at the base of the beach.

Surfing

Chance of a 1 m wind wave during strong westerlies.

Fishing

There are rip holes and gutters against the rocks, particularly following strong westerlies.

General

A small, pocket, rock bound and relatively isolated beach for those who want a change from the adjacent long beaches.
