Ideal for a pleasant beach walk and no doubt popular with swimmers and surfers at another time of year. Fishermen were the majority on our August visit. Minimal facilities but felt safe to park and stroll.

Visited on my birthday 16 April. Long walk along the coast to get to Gerick's Point, but we'll worth it. Such a beautiful site to see. Very calm and relaxing environment!

The walk along the beach to Gerickes Point is a must. We saw dolphins frolicking just off the rocks. Best at low tide because you can then walk among all the rock pools and see starfish in the pools

Want a great walk? Throw in the beauty and the fossilized dunes on this awesome location. Breeding seagulls and oyster catchers gives the spot absolute appeal for a great morning or afternoon walk

This walk along beach please check it is low tide so you can cross safely as not very safe when it isn't low tidal

at low tide there should not be a problem for a 7 year old to do it. (Disclaimer: my 7 year old is now 29 years old!)
