Beach NT 1030 is located on the southern side of the 10 m high massive sandstone of Yirrkala point. The 600 m long beach initially faces south in the protected lee of the point, then curves round to face east, exposing it to waves averaging about 1 m. These break across a 50 m wide low tide bar, as well as across some rocks scattered along the beach and particularly at either end, with a permanent rip against the southern rocks. The beach is backed by a 200 m wide early Holocene grassy dune field that extends across to the northern side of the point
