Beach 1463 faces north and extends for 3.5 km from Eurimbula to Round Hill inlet. It is backed by one of the most extensive beach ridge plains on the coast, with 3 km of Holocene ridges, backed by another 3 km of Pleistocene ridges, in total representing a 6 km progradation of the shoreline. The two tidal creeks border each side, and there is a 4WD track out to the western end of the beach where a few shacks are located. Parts of the backing beach ridges, but not the beach, are contained in the Eurimbula National Park. The beach is moderately protected from south and easterly waves, with waves usually less than 0.5 m. These maintain a high tide beach fronted by a continuous low tide bar, which narrows to the east. Round Hill Creek inlet flows out along the side of the head for 3 km, with tidal shoals paralleling the western side of the channel.
