Leonard Bay, beside Squeaky Beach, has two small pocket beaches set amongst the rocks on the southern side of Leonard Point. Both beaches are 50 m in length, are backed by steep vegetated slopes, face south and receive waves averaging less than 1 m. The best access is by boat or around the rocks at low tide. Both beaches have a continuous attached bar and one rip against the rocks. The rips intensify when waves exceed 1 m.

Swimming

Moderately safe during low waves, on the bar and clear of the rip. However, these beaches are isolated and should be avoided when waves exceed 1 m.

Surfing

Usually a low shorebreak.

Fishing

Better off the surrounding rocks than the beach.

General

Two small isolated beaches.
