Extending for 3 km south of Arrawarra Headland is a series of three headland all composed of fine grained metasedimentary rocks, with a total of four exposed east-facing beaches (NSW 85-88) bounded by the rocky promontories. The first is Ocean View Beach (NSW 85) which curves for 900 m between the prominent Arrawarra Head and 30 m high Ocean View Headland. The road to Arrawarra Headland runs along the rear of the beach, providing access to a southern and central parking area and houses backing the northern and southern sections, including some of Ocean View headland. The beach faces due east, but receives slight protection from the southern headland. It is composed of medium sand resulting in a single bar, with rocks also occupying the northern 300 m of surf. Usually 3-4 rips cut across the bar, with a strong permanent rip against the northern rocks and a lesser one against the southern headland.
