Larapuna/Bay of Fires has gulches full of crayfish and abalone (though you'll need a licence to catch them), and superb diving in the bay’s clear waters. The ocean beaches here offer some good surf but are prone to rips: check conditions with locals, or plunge into one of the many tiny rock-protected coves here.

Ansons Bay is big on fishing, boating and swimming. Ansons River Lagoon is perfect for some sheltered kayaking.
