Bickley Bay beach (RI 16) commences at the tip of Phillip Point, the eastern tip of the island and gently curves to the southwest for 1 km to the 20 m high calcarenite bluffs of Bickley Point, which has a World War 2 pillar-box on the tip of the point. The beach receives low waves in the north, which decrease down the beach enabling the seagrass to reach the shore along the southern half. As a result seagrass debris usually piles up on this section of the beach. The beach is backed 10-20 m high vegetated bluffs and then the Kingston Environmental Education Centre complex.
