Between the Little River mouth and Kirk Point is a 5.5 km section of south-east facing coast containing four low, crenulate, sandy beaches. The first two beaches between the river and Beacon Point are backed by sewer farms. Low basalt and shelly points and reefs form the boundaries between the beaches, with the most prominent being Beacon and Kirk Points. The beaches are low and narrow, and are fronted by intertidal sand flats. These are 500 m wide at the river mouth, but decrease in width to 200 m off Kirk Point.The only public access to the area is a boat ramp located 1 km north of Beacon Point. The remaining area is restricted due to the sewer farm.

Swimming

All of these beaches are fronted by shallow flats, the water depth of which depends on the tide. They are covered by high tides and exposed at low tide.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Most people fish from boats along here, with high water required to fish from the beaches or points.

General

A largely off limits section of the bay, used only by fishers launching their boats from the Beacon Point ramp.
