A peek-a-boo strip of white sand that comes and goes with the tide. Red ochre rocks that tumble out of scrub and into the blue. This is Point Picquet, striking and architectural.
Swimming is accessible, though it does require a clamber to shore. There is small surf off the point.
Boats are attracted to the inlet, as are fishing enthusiasts keen to cast from shore. Marine health is prized, with this stretch of beach forming part of the protected Eagle Bay Special Purpose Zone.
Whale watch in near isolation through the migratory months of June through to November. Rock pool hop in summer.
Appreciation of Point Picquet is best accessed via quiet enjoyment of its diverse appeal.
