Located just out from the main beach of the reserve. The rock itself is visible during low tide but not at high tide. Depth ranges between 3-5m (depending on the tide) and lies around sandy pathways with kelp forests more so behind it.

Shags perch on the top of the rock when it is uncovered during the low tide. Most of the marine sea life can be seen around this rock : Snapper, eagle rays, leather jackets, red moki.
