Widemouth Bay: This large sandy beach with its adjacent rocky reefs provides good rock pooling opportunities. Backed by low cliffs and surrounded by fascinating rock formations. The bay is known for excellent surf.


Blackrock beach is isolated at high tide. Recognisable by a rocky outcrop at Southern end. Popular with surfers due to a combination of reef and beach breaks on the incoming tide.
