This is a great place. When you get to the point there are lots of pools with interesting sealife to discover. Really a fun way to spend the day. Best to visit at low tide.

This beach in Sedgefield is outside the town. When it is low tide you can have a walk to the rocks. Nature surround you.

If you would like to see starfish and octopus, or pick your own mussels for the pot, spending a few hours at Gericke's point is a special family experience. Be sure to get there a couple of hours before low tide. The best time of...More

at low tide there should not be a problem for a 7 year old to do it. (Disclaimer: my 7 year old is now 29 years old!)
