Sandy Point is small coastal community situated at the entrance of a narrow peninsula that fronts both Waratah Bay and Shallow Inlet with its adjacent wetlands. Located at the northern end of Wilsons Promontory National Park, Sandy Point is a perfect and accessible base for exploring the beauty of the natural attractions in the area.
The commercial centre of Sandy Point features a cafe, general store, mini golf facility and real estate office on Beach Parade, which is separated from the beach by the row of sand dunes which constitute the Sandy Point Foreshore Reserve. Sandy Point is primarily a holiday retreat town, with the majority of residences being holiday houses and apartments.
The beaches fronting Waratah Bay feature wide expanses of sand with the attractive backdrop of mountain peaks along Wilsons Promontory's west coast in the distance, and are popular with swimmers and surfers and are supported by the local surf life saving club.
On the opposite side of town, Sandy Point Road leads to Shallow Inlet where the compacted sand at the end of the road allows visitors to drive their vehicles right out onto the beach and close to the water's edge. Shallow Inlet is popular with windsurfers and sailing's world speed record was set here. Spectacular views across Shallow Inlet and down to Wilsons Promontory can be enjoyed by climbing the sand dunes and enjoying breathtaking views in all directions.
