Bottom Bay is everyone’s dream of the perfect tropical beach – cliffs, coconut palms, a cave, soft white sand, brisk breezes and aquamarine sea. A first class picnic venue with chairs for rent. Harrismith has much less beach area but does have a shallow lagoon for a calm dip at low tide and is also very beautiful. Both beaches have formidable steps.
Just beyond Bottom Bay is the East Point lighthouse which is being restored and is worth a visit just for the view. Drop into Deebles Art Gallery and Café and try Karlene’s delicious cheesecakes. They can guide you to a ‘secret’ beach and Deebles Point lookout.
