A spot mainly known to locals, Red Point picnic area provides access to the white sandy beaches on the northern shores of Jervis Bay, set within a sanctuary zone of Jervis Bay Marine Park. From here, you can enjoy glorious views south out across Jervis Bay and to nearby Red Point.

The wide-open area is sheltered from the dominant summer breeze and has several tables and a toilet, making it an ideal picnic spot. From here, you can also easily launch a kayak out into the bay or take a walk to Hare Point, either along the beach or follow the old sand track through the bush.
