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 1482 consists of three patches of sand and rock, totalling 100 m in length. The rocks form the northern boundary of 1.4 km long beach 1483, which runs straight down to the northern side of Red Rock headland. Beach 1483 is backed by a 20 m high, climbing foredune. It is relatively steep and commonly cusped, with a low tide bar that is usually cut by five to six rips, including permanent rips against the boundary rocks. In addition, a few rocks outcrop toward the northern end of the beach. There is 4WD access to the southern end, however be careful driving on the beach as it is very soft.
