The high wave energy sandy beach is unsafe for swimming. There is reasonable wind protection but the coastal vegetation does not provide shade.

THINGS TO DO
The northern section of the park is characterised by limestone cliffs, sea stacks, offshore reefs and low dense scrub, whereas the southern section is dominated by mobile sand dunes and stretches of beach which are backed by low foredunes. Evidence of the Aboriginal Boandik people, who once lived in temporary camps along the coast, can be seen throughout the park.
The 40km coastline offers great fishing opportunities. Depending on the season and ocean conditions, mulloway, salmon, sharks or rays may tempt a bite. Try your luck off the rocks where sweep, abalone and crayfish may be caught.
Four-wheel driving is possible along the full length of the park by following the marker posts through the dunes and along Geltwood Beach.
Fire restrictions apply.
The collection of firewood (either dead or alive) is prohibited.
