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.

Took our binoculars to see if could spot whales. Saw spout before even got out of car. Saw a few spouts in distance. Nice drive & scenery Dawn Walsh
Beautiful little bay, but apparently amazing place to view the whales 🐳 Only viewed them up the coast, but apparently if you are lucky you can see them right up close here ☺️ Lija Erkhova
