The low western wall and walkway begins at the Double Bay sailing club and extends 140 m east. It is fronted by a moderately steep 10 m wide sandy beach. The higher eastern wall is backed by beachfront houses and apartments and protrudes onto the beach, which consists of a 5 m wide strip of sand, much of which is covered by high tide. It terminates against a 100 m long
