This spot lies roughly halfway between Northcott & Sandymouth. Take your pick which beach you wanna park at, then hike down the beach til you get to the rocks which stick out closest to the sea. They are obvious as they stick out a lot further than anything else. About a 15 minute walk.

This spot goes off..... sometimes. The protruding rocks keep the banks in pretty good shape, forming a shallow triangle which gives both lefts and rights at lower tides. Definitely a low tide spot only, as the beach is completely submerged at mid/high tide, and its a long long paddle back to the beach along vertical cliffs!
Due to the shallower banks, this wave packs a bit more punch than most of the beachies in the area, and can get pretty hollow. The first section is generally the best, and you should be able to get a cover up. Even if it isn't throwing out, it offers some fast beltable walls until it dies out in the rip.
Generally not the longest wave in the world but the steep faces and hollow sections make it a high performance spot. Allegedly named by some guy who wandered down the beach to surf the peak he saw in the distance, and came face to face with a hot young chickie who was trying to do some secluded nudie sun baking for that all over tan!
A good place to avoid the summer crowds, and get a bit more grunt. Although it keeps its shape reasonablly well, it's best surfed on a clean swell.

This isn't really a separate beach. - OI, bloke who put this crap on, this is in the same location as your "DUNSMOUTH" addition, both of which are just the left of sandymouth at low tide.
