South of Elliott Heads is a 60 km long series of sandy beaches and large inlets sweeping down to the rocks of Point Vernon. Much of the coast is undeveloped, with only three small settlements at Woodgate, Burrum Heads and Toogoom. The first two beaches extend for 18 km south of the heads. Coonarr beach (1512) is a 4.2 km long, east facing beach that begins amongst the tidal shoals of the Elliott River mouth, then runs straight down to the smaller mouth of Coonarr Creek. There is a gravel road out to the small beachfront settlement of Coonarr, located toward the southern end of the beach. The beach receives waves averaging over 0.5 m, which maintain a relatively steep and narrow high tide beach fronted by a continuous low tide bar, up to 100 m wide.
