Newport faces due east so is open to swell coming from any direction. A jumble of rocks 250 metres south of the north headland known as The Peak shapes two separate breaks that attract a highly skilled local surfing tribe.

One of Newport's most distinctive features is a broad flat rock platform at the south end of the beach.
