Spanish Point Park


Popular with picnicking and card-playing locals, this tree-fringed park sits on the tip of a promontory at the entrance of the channel to Hamilton Harbour and Great Sound. You can hardly miss the great wreck of the Victorian HM Floating Dock in the water. There's good snorkeling around the coves and islets on the Atlantic side of the park.
