Forty baskets is a beautiful little stop on the spit walk between north harbour reserve and dobroyd point.
There's an ocean pool which keeps the sharks out and makes for good jumping off. The water gets pretty shallow at high tide so definitely no diving!
It's a great spot to stop if you're doing the walk but also has road access if you want to drive down to the water on a summer day.
Bring a towel and some sun screen. Barbecues and picnic tables at the park mean you can bring the kids and spend the day.
