The western tip of Point Nepean, from Cheviot Hill out to the point and around to Observatory Point in the bay, is part of the Mornington Peninsula National Park. A road runs right out to the point with access to these three beaches from the road, via walking tracks down the backing bluffs. All three beaches are backed by 20 to 30 m high calcarenite bluffs and fronted by near continuous intertidal rock flats, with occasional deeper channels. Pearce Hill and Nepean Hill Beaches face south-west and have waves averaging 1.7 m breaking on the outer reefs. Point Nepean Beach wraps around the point and faces north-west, consequently receiving waves averaging only 0.5 m. However, the strong tidal currents of The Rip run just off the beach.
