A Silver Spot fish @ ‘Solar Tubes’.
Reputedly this  site was named by surfers living around Sceale Bay,and is one of their favourite local shore-accessible sites.On a good day the Southern Ocean’s majestic swells can appear surreal due refraction of the sun’s rays as the sets rise,steepen  then curl over nicely before dissipating against the extensive tidal and subtidal rocky reef platform.At it’s more sheltered end the beach merges with this reef platform,which also sports some spectacular near-shore remnant ‘bommies’.These high-relief limestone bommies,several of which are almost contiguous with the beach,have extensive undercut ledges and swimthroughs,packed with colourful marine life. But as conditions here(eg swells,tide,wind direction) are critical in determining safe entry and egress,only experienced divers and strong snorkelers should venture in,and then only after seeking advice from the friendly locals.(v.
