Scattered Ocean -side sand sandstone stone

blocks with plenty of options, located on the rock platform at the northern end of Whale Beach. This is a nice Summer afternoon option with a sea breeze and late afternoon shade.

Updated beta approach.
The sea ledge is very exposed to sea conditions facing South, South East so swell and tide conditions must be considered whenever visiting this location. Recommend North, North East swell under 1 meter Located at the Northern end of Whale Beach, parking can be found at either the beach car park and walk to the end of the beach, or park at the (free) public 4P car park oposite 244 Whale Beach Rd and walk down the public pathway straight to the north end of the beach. The boulders are described left to right as you get to them from the beach. Crag is located at the Northern end of Whale Beach, parking can be found at either beach car park and walk to the end of the beach, or there is also an access path to the beach at the northern end coming off Whale Beach rd, there is limited parking at this access path. Walk to the northern end of the beach, follow the shore line to see the boulders after 100m. Walk to the northern end of the beach and it is only a short walk around the rock platform until you can see the lose boulders on your left.
