Alligator Bay and Stanage Bays are two bays south of the eastern Arthur Point. The two bays face north-east and are backed by mainly cleared, gently rising land, with the main Stanage Bay Road running less than 1km west, providing road access to each. Stanage Bay is the second main bay on the northern peninsula and contains one of the nicer beaches.
It is a 1.7km long, curving, low gradient beach, broken in the centre by a 20m high islet connected to the low tide bar. Stanage Point, capped by 70m high Bald Hill, forms the southern boundary, with a 20m high cleared headland separating it from Alligator Bay.
