Duckpool Beach

Duckpool is a wild and romantic cove, which is appreciated most for its wild setting. Dominated by the spectacular peak of Steeple Point Cliff, it is favoured by many as a quiet retreat away from it all. Swimming and surfing are not recommended, as the currents are extremely dangerous and razor-sharp rocks only add to the hazards.
