Beach WA 384 is a curving 100 m long pocket beach wedged in between the tombolo-point and the sloping granite of a western point. The two points converge to form a reef-strewn 50 m wide opening to the beach, with waves averaging about 0.5 m at the shore, resulting in a low energy reflective beach. The beach is suitable for swimming inshore, but beware of the reef and rocks where the points converge offshore.

Surfing

Nanarup Beach is worth checking out if you have a 4WD to head up along the beach to the numerous beach breaks including reefs breaks at the eastern end. Mount Taylor rises to 200 m, 1.5 km west of Islet Point. The steep slopes of the mount dominate the next 5 km of shoreline to Ledge Point, with 150 m high Mount Martin 3 km further west. The first 3 km contains six small beaches (WA 385-390) all bordered by granite points and backed by the densely vegetated slopes. There is no formal access to any of the beaches, though most can be accessed via rough 4 WD tracks. Ben Dearg Beach occupies a 1 km long, southeast-facing, open embayment that is divided into of three sections by some central rocks.
