Bedrock reaches the coast at Ross Creek and dominates much of the coast between here and Cocoanut Point, 17 km to the south. The main Emu Park Road runs close to the coast because of the backing higher ground and provides good access to all the beaches.
On the southern side of Wave Point is the small Cooee Bay, which has a 500 m long, curving beach (1365) extending from the point to the southern Wreck Point. The beach is bordered by the 20 m high headlands and their rocky platforms and reefs, with rocks extending along the northern section of the beach. The remainder is a moderately steep high tide sand beach fronted by a continuous, 50 m wide low tide bar. Waves average less than 0.5 m and rips are usually absent.
