On the inner southern side of 2 km long Tongue Point is a protected 250 m long, south-west facing beach. The walking track to Tongue Point runs along the ridge 300 m behind the beach. It is bordered by high granite headlands and backed by steep vegetated slopes. The beach only receives refracted waves averaging less than 1 m, which produce a usually continuous narrow bar. There is a chance of rips against the rocks when waves exceed 1 m.

Swimming

A moderately safe but isolated beach. Watch for the boundary rips when waves exceed 1 m.

Surfing

Usually a low shorebreak.

Fishing

Better off the rocks, however deep water can be reached over the narrow bar at low tide.

General

A small isolated beach surrounded by steep slopes.
