At Point Edgar the shoreline turns and trends north-northeast to Point Billie and onto the next inflection in the shore, forming a 4.2 km long west-facing beach (WA 1537). The reef fringes the shore just 500 m off the beach, with low waves and reflective conditions prevailing at the shore. The beach is backed by the active dunes along its southern half extending 3 km to the east, with vegetated dunes to the north narrowing to 1.5 km. A 4 WD track crosses the northern dunes to reach the northern tip of the beach.
fringing reefs lies 1 km off each point and up to 3 km off the centre of the embayment. Two beaches (WA 1538 & 1539) occupy the 9.5 km of beach shore.
