|Snapper Point Beach|
Snapper Point Beach is an informal name for the small beach between Frazer Beach and Snapper Point. This walk starts from the great views of the sea cave and leads out to Snapper Point. Here, the walk turns right and follows the shore to the lifebuoy, then across the rocks to the secluded beach. The high grade on this walk is due to the risk associated with walking on the rock ledge, please take care. The notes mention an alternate route that can be used as a shortcut back to the car park.
