Puzzle at the odd-looking boulders--including one that resembles a lion--at Gerickes Point, a beach accessible during low tide only. Mingle among fishers standing like guards along the shore, or cast some bait into the water yourself. Stroll along the sand, look out for dolphins and porpoises, and pack some snacks to enjoy. Receding tides leave shallow pools with sea anemones, sea cucumbers, and small fish.

Gerickes Point Reviews
Mooi uitzicht over de zee en dit punt, zeker een stop waard als je in de buurt bent. Volgens mij kun je er ook naartoe wandelen met de juiste weersomstandigheden, maar dat konden wij helaas niet. more »Nice view over the sea and this point, definitely worth a stop if you are nearby. I think you can also walk there with the right weather conditions, but unfortunately we couldn't.
Lovely walk along the beach to Gerickes Point. Great natural and safe tidal pools for the family to enjoy. Watch out for high tide which may cut off your route back more »
Breathtakingly beautiful!! A scenic walk for any and everyone! Best to do on low tide - so make sure you've checked out the tides first 😉
Excellent spot. Nice beach that is away from most busy beaches. There is life guards in season. You can walk to lion rock and look at the rock pools at low tide. You can also fish.
