Butterslade lies to the east of Thurba Head and is a mostly rocky beach with deep rock-pools, caves and some small patches of low tide sand. There are no paths down to the shore, and reaching it involves negotiating the rocks at the back of the beach. Butterslade Cave is on the far west side of the bay, and is about 30 yards long, whilst in the next inlet to the east is Red Chamber - a cave of about 40 yards length at the back of which is an adit of approximately 20 yards.
