Point Picquet

Star 4.7 (182 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.

Great place to whale watch, amazing how close they actually pass by here! Also, if you’re comfortable swimming and are there during whale season, you have to swim out 20m or so on the beaches either side and dive down a couple metres where you can hear the whales singing!

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!
