There is something wild about the south point. This is where the reef begins and the sandy plateau ends. The reef here is scattered with deep pools, as opposed to the flatter seaweed beds on the rest of the east coast. It is a place to marvel at the crystal clear waters, emptying out of the reef at low tide.
For the adventurous snorkeler, the deep pools are a great place to look for large Nurse Sharks and at low tide you can also walk on the reef (wearing reef shoes) to explore the pools, or just sit in them and enjoy your own salt water jacuzzi.
For birdwatchers, the south point is the best place to spot Crested Terns.
