South of Kellys Beach, the coast trends roughly due south for 10 km to Elliott Heads, at the mouth of the Elliott River. Most of the shoreline consists of low basalt bluffs and boulders, with only four small pockets of sand.
Barolin Rocks is a low, protruding, rocky point, 1 km south of which is a small, 50 m pocket sand beach (1508) in amongst a shoreline consisting of continuous basalt boulders. The nearest road ends just south of the point, with foot access to the beach along the low shoreline. The beach consists of a narrow high tide beach and an 80 m wide low tide bar that merges with the rocks both seaward and to the side. A small foredune backs the beach, beyond which is an older, partly active, low dune field extending up to 1 km inland.
