Bicheno 7215, TAS

Waubs Bay is the name of the anchorage in lee of Peggys Point and the site of the main boat ramp on the point. The ramp is protected by a small groyne and there are usually a few boats moored in the bay. Within the 500 m wide bay are two protected north-facing beaches (T 144 and 145). Beach T 144 is a 100 m long pocket of sand located on the western side of the bay, while the main beach (T 145) extends for 200 m along the southern shore of the bay, with rounded granite rocks bordering and separating the two beaches (Fig. 4.26). The beaches receive low refracted waves averaging about 0.5 m. These surge up the steep, narrow beach, with a narrow attached bar present during higher waves. Higher waves also produce a heavy shorebreak, particularly at the rocky western end of the bay. Beach Street runs down to the middle of the beach where there is a car park and toilet facilities. The town of Bicheno is located on the slopes to the south of the bay, with a hotel on the eastern point. A 4 km long foreshore walking track follows the rocky coast around Peggys Point past the boat harbour in The Gulch to the blowhole and Rice Beach and on to Muirs Rock beach.

Waubs Bay offers the safest swimming, while if swimming at Redbill stay at the lower energy southern end. The northern spit end can be dominated by strong rips. Diamond Beach is relatively safe, particularly when connected to the island, however it is isolated.
