At Pelican Point, the coast turns east into Daveys Bay, then swings back to face west past Kackeraboite Creek. This 1.5 km long section is dominated by 20 to 30 m high bluffs, rocks and reefs, with the narrow beaches wedged in between them. Daveys Bay Road runs to the top of Pelican Point, with walking access down the bluffs to Pelican Point Beach and Daveys Bay, where a yacht club and jetty are located. Gulls Way provides access to the bluffs above Kackeraboite Creek Beach.
Pelican Point and Daveys Bay beaches face north and are partly protected from the westerlies, while Kackeraboite faces north-west and is more exposed. Strong westerly winds and waves produce a bar along the beaches. The bar is usually attached at Pelican Point, but in Daveys Bay and along Kackeraboite it is cut by rip channels, with rocks and reefs becoming more dominant to the north.
