Black Rock Beach

On the south side of Widemouth Bay, Blackrock beach has wild beauty in abundance. Look to the south and you’ll spot a prominent rocky outcrop which gives this beach its name. Watch out for big tides here (Blackrock Beach becomes isolated at the height of the tide). Some major point and reef breaks draw the surfers, while nature lovers of all ages will enjoy looking through the abundance of rock pools at low tide.
