It is about 3 km west of the town of Flinders, and is accessed by a 1 km foot-track and staircase from the Boneo Rd. A small car park is located at the start of the signposted track.
There are magnificent views looking south across the open ocean of Bass Strait, as well as the dramatic coastlines from the clifftop, in either direction, with waves breaking over large basalt rock formations.
I visited the Bay on Saturday afternoon March 5, 2011, I usually go down there every three months - this was the 2011 autumn trip! I followed the beach track to East Point and beyond, then back to the staircase, then up to the top of West Bluff, a total of about 3 km.
I met some other visitors who were also exploring the marvellous rock pools, which had been exposed during low tide.
The cliffs rise about 50 m from sea level.
