Beach

Beach WA 1988 begins at the inflection in the shore and curves gently to the north for 3.5 km to a small tidal creek. It is backed by a well developed 1.5-2 km wide series of up to 40 foredune ridges, the inner most ridges extending 4 km to the south in lee of the McKelson Creek. The barrier is one of the better formed and preserved foredune plains in the North West. The beach consists of a 300-400 m wide low gradient upper intertidal ultradissipative beach grading seaward into 2.5 km wide low tide sand flats.
