The beach faces north-north-east toward Shag Rock, 1.5 km offshore. Sand waves change over time, so too does the nature of the shoreline, bars and surf. There is access to the beach at Adder Rock, at some access tracks along the beach, and at the east end, below the Point Lookout Hotel headland. Home Beach was named from the era when the only route to Point Lookout was from Amity via Flinders Beach. When the bus got to Adder Rock, the last beach was called Home Beach because it was almost home.
There are two camping areas here.. One at Adder Beach and the other at Home Beach. Both are from $50 unpowered and there are cabins from $100 a night. There are accommodation resorts along the coast ranging from $150 a night for studio…and more in top season. I think Manta Lodge is one of the best places to stay at. My single room was fully equipped and I had a fridge, electric jug and coffee and tea as well as beautiful toiletries and a very comfortable bed at $100 a night. Dorms are half that.
