The coast from Rocky Point to Red Rock is 3 km in length and consists of a rocky shore containing four east facing, steep, sandy beaches. All four are exposed to waves averaging 0.5 to 1 m and all are dominated to varying degrees by low tide rips. There is access to the coast at Rocky Point, where there is a small housing subdivision immediately south of the point, as well as 4WD access to all the beaches. Beach 1481 lies to the south of the houses and is a 250 m long, rock-bound beach, with rocks also outcropping in the centre to produce a crenulate sand and rock shoreline. The high tide beach is relatively steep and narrow with a 50 m wide low tide bar. Rips form along the rocks during high waves. There is 4WD access to the southern point, where there is an informal camping site behind the beach.
