Past Campbells Cove, the coast continues due south. It consists of low, basalt bluffs fronted by a narrow, high tide beach and 100 to 200 m wide intertidal sand flats. The only access is along Duncans Road, that reaches the coast at the southern end of the 2.5 km long north beach. The road then parallels the coast as far as Werribee South. The small, but wider, south beach is located between low basalt bluffs and seawalls.

Swimming

The south beach is the more accessible and attractive of the two, and is best at high tide when the tidal flats are under water.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

The southern seawall and bluffs can be fished at high tide only.

General

The north beach is narrow and is largely inaccessible by car, while the small south beach is the more popular with picnickers and bathers.
