This coastline section provides shelter only in winds from SE to S.
Govenors Bay and Becks Bay have some shelter from SW to W winds which tend to blow straight along the Grove Arm.
The prevailing N to NW winds makes this area a lee shore thus overnight anchorage in the area in those conditions is undesirable.
holding is good and generally there is sufficient depth of water up to 20m from the shore.
there are rocks off the points into Beck's and Ngakuta Bays and also close to the Wedge Point
Caution is to be taken around the point as there can be busy traffic coming from both directions, especially in the summer months.
The coast locally known as "the Mile" showcases some attractive but relatively small sandy beaches which are popular with kayakers and recreational small craft
