Landing Comments:

Moderate or difficult approach to landing, open ocean, surf, sand. Protected by reefs and rocks offshore. Avoid approaching in any swell, flood tide best. Fog, boomers. Well-protected beach once past entrance reefs. Water smoother to S of small islet in centre of entrance. At tides above half height, a passage along the S shore to S of the largest islet is easiest route.

Camp Comments:

Sheltered, undeveloped. Cleared upland forest site at S end, also flat beach sites on fine sand. 4 or 5 sites along trail to Blunden Bay. Lots of room above high water in horseshoe bay 400 m long.

Other Comments:

Attractive, curved bay. Squeaking sands. Trail across headland between Indian Cove and NE Blunden Bay. Water at creek S of Blunden Bay requires boat access. Water also reported 30 min walk at N? end of beach and smaller seasonal streams in Blunden Bay. See: Ugʷiwa’/Cape Caution–Blunden Bay Conservancy
