Sandy Bay question

I am reading that it is not possible to swim from the beach at Sandy Bay. Can someone tell me why this is? Thank you!

Not sure, maybe due to rough surf, large unpredictable swells..You can always ask the locals as to why. If you walk to Lot's Wife ponds (about 45 min. - an hour away), you can swim in protected areas where the rocks form ponds of varying depths. You can also go to Lemon Valley, where swimming is very nice, though it is quite the hike as well.
