The exposed eastern side of Moreton Island runs for 38 km from rocky North Point down to elongate, sandy Reeders Point. In between are the rocks of the cape, then a 31 km long, slightly curving, high energy, east facing beach that extends from the south side of the cape down to the beginning of the large South Passage tidal channel. The beach then continues on for another 6 km inside the passage to Reeders Point, with increasing protection afforded by the offshore tidal shoals.
Sovereign beach (MOR5H) is the final 5 km long section that runs down to the beginning of the South Passage. The southern few kilometres begin to swing to the south-east in lee of the extensive tidal shoals of the passage, while the active Little Sandhills back the beach.
