Northern most end of the bay. (Approximately 11Kms from Jurien Town.) It is home to coastal squatter shacks. There is some wartime history here with two anti aircraft bunkers situated at the head of the bay.

At this point a solid granite memorial can be seen, in remembrance of a shark attack victim, aged 23 who died 19th August 1967. The memorial was erected on 24th August 1968 by family and friends.
This is a great spot for fishing and picnics, but camping is not permitted.
