Beach

Beach commences at the low rocky tip of the point and trends south for 2 km to a northward-deflected creek mouth. The beach is backed by grassy slopes down as far as the creek mouth and its tidal sand shoals. It is fronted by a 50 m wide low tide bar, then a few hundred metres of subtidal sand and patchy reefs, with the sand waves extending 4 km offshore.

General

At First Red Rocky Point the shoreline continues south toward Princess Charlotte Bay. The next bedrock outcrop south of the point is Cape Sidmouth, 40 m to the south. In between is low to moderate energy reef-protected shoreline, with substantial areas of shoreline progradation, dominated by northward migrating spits and recurved spits, and massive sand wave fields paralleling the coast up to 4 km offshore. Numerous reefs are scattered off the coast, while fringing reefs parallel many of the beaches.
