Point Roadknight is a narrow ridge of dune calcarenite that parallels the adjoining Urquhart Bluff Beach. The point and its reef protrude 500 m to the east and afford considerable protection to the beach. The beach is 700 m long and faces north-east. It lies between the slippery Soapy Rocks and the point. Beware of the slippery rocks which are a hazard to walk on. There is road access to the back of the beach, a large car park, a boat ramp and a yacht club.Waves reaching the beach average less than 1 m, which results in a continuous, attached bar and usually no rips.
This is the safest beach in the Anglesea region and is also patrolled daily by lifeguards during the Christmas holiday period.
Usually too small to bother about.
Better off the point than the beach.
A popular summer beach for those who want lower waves and the added safety of a patrolled beach.Read less
