South of Fort Milford, Store Bay Local Road swings left before meeting the fences of the airport runway, encircled by narrow NP Road. Obscured by trees and shrubs, pretty and often deserted Sandy Point Beach is easy to miss; take the first dirt road off NP into the bush (just opposite the end of the tarmac) and you’ll emerge onto a picturesque and completely undeveloped strip of fine white sand and translucent sea bordered by sea grapes and palms. Swimming is safe if you stick to the left of the beach; currents get strong around the headland to the right. Sandy Point is a popular lunch spot and a great place to watch the sunset, with cars parked up at a small paved area next to the sea wall.
