In a 2 wheel drive you can drive on back top until about 200 metres from the point. In a 4x4 you can drive right up on to the point. The wave works from Late-June until early-September which coincides with the Khareef. he wave handle the cross Khareef wind well. However large swell and strong winds produce a rip that will carry you from the peak and deposit you right down the beach in a matter of minutes. Luckily the rip runs pretty much parallel with the beach. To counter the rip either use a bigger board that is easier to paddle, surf earlier in the morning or late afternoon. Mid-August to early-September often sees moderate swells and moderate winds which result in fun waves.
You can paddle in off the point. Either jumping in off the rocks or wading in through one of the several key holes.
There is a wave through most tides however at full tide the wave can be a bit fat. The wave breaks better on lower tides.
It's a fishing beach so can be a bit fishy smelling at times. Also over the last few years there has been a marked increase in fishing related detritus such as discarded nets, floats and plastic. A lot of locals visit the point to picnic and to fish. However the beach is large so you can find somewhere secluded to camp.
