Mettams Pool is located at the southern end of a crenulate 500 m long beach (WA 849) where it is afforded protection by calcarenite reefs. The beach is backed by the vegetated bluffs and fronted by an irregular 50-100 m wide platform-reef, which generates the irregularities in the shoreline. The road backs the bluffs, with a large car park cut into the bluffs behind the northern section of the beach
Aldinga Beach (216) and adjoining Snapper Point is a 1.5 km narrow, crenulate high tide sand beach fronted by 300 to 400 m wide intertidal rock flats, that extend further offshore as reefs. The whole point and reef area is an aquatic reserve. Aldinga township backs the bluffs, with a bluff top road paralleling the back of the beach and providing both views and access to the beach and fronting platforms.
Meelup Beach (WA 739) is a northeast-facing 400 m long pocket of sand occupying the mouth of a small valley, bordered by the rising vegetated slopes in lee of Garnet Rock to the west and smaller Sail Rock to the east, both of which are fronted by boulder beaches. The main beach is often calm with a moderately steep beach fronted by a narrow bar then deeper water off the beach. There is road access to a large car park and shady picnic area immediately behind the beach, while Meelup Brook crosses the western corner of the beach.
