This site is in a Marine Protected Area (2004). A permit is required. The site is entirely inside the Boulders Restricted Zone.
No record has been found for the origin of the name “Fisherman’s Beach”. It is not even popular as a fishing spot.
Shallow. The 10 m contour is over a hundred metres from the shore.
Visibility is not very good as it is shallow and the surge lifts the fine sand, but it is usually well illuminated.
