Point Picquet

Star 4.7 (171 Google reviews)

A peek-a-boo strip of white sand that comes and goes with the tide. Red ochre rocks that tumble out of shrub 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 (where fishing from a boat is not permitted).

This is a great spot to whale watch in near isolation through the migratory months of June through to November, and to rock pool hop in summer.

Appreciation of Point Picquet is best accessed via quiet enjoyment of its diverse appeal.

Beautiful! An amazing place to enjoy the wild ocean and the breathtaking orange rocks. A bench is available to sit and watch the ocean - and perhaps to catch sight of a whale or two! Stunning, and well worth a stop!

If you are visiting the more famous Castle Rock, it's worth going further up the same road to spend time here to appreciate the beauty of the water and the rock formation. Saw a few big fishes caught from the rocks.

Such a stunning beach with beautiful clear water. A few fishermen and not a lot of people.

Found a beautiful octopus. Clean blue water. No strong currents when no wind
