Either walk down the track from the carpark at the top of nine mile hill or the simpler option is to drive further north approx 600m and take the first left and drive 100m down the gravel road to the beach. From here you can walk the 400m back to the point along the beach.

 Additional Information

Nine mile is a mussel reef that breaks best around low tide and 1-2m south swell. It can get quite epic in the right conditions with long sucky lefts up for grabs.
The best way to get out is walk as far out on the mussel beds as possible then make a mad paddle out between sets

General

Booties are useful if you have soft feet. The mussel can be quite painful to walk over. On its day probably the best wave on the Coast.
