Both beaches are relatively short, bordered by rocky shorelines, with two clumps of rock dividing Turtle Creek Beach. They have relatively steep, narrow, cusped high tide beaches fronted by narrow, continuous bars. Sand moving around from the southern beach can form an offshore bar off the southern end of the main beach. Waves average 0.5m, breaking across the bar at low tide and surging up the beach face at high tide.
