Point Gellibrand is a low, basaltic point in lee of which is a narrow, high tide, sand beach fronted by basalt boulders and sand flats. A road parallels the back of the 500 m long, crenulate beach, and historic Fort Gellibrand occupies the backing point.The beach faces south-east and consequently (coupled with the point and rocks) receives very low waves. As a result, there are sand flats amongst the rocks.

Swimming

Best at high tide when the rocks and sand flats are covered.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

There is shallow water right along the beach even off the rocks.

General

A narrow winding beach dominated by basalt rock flats and boulders.
