If you are lucky you may spot a pod of dolphins close to the beach. There is a conservation area at the southern accessible from St Helens. Here you will find camping grounds along a 13-kilometre section of the road ending at private land known as The Gardens. Policemans Point is in the middle section of the Bay of Fires.
