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.
Immediately south of Ross Creek is Wave Point beach (1364), which begins on the southern side of the Ross Creek groyne and curves around for 500 m, with a roughly north-east orientation. There are rocks on the beach, which ends against the rocky, 20 m high Wave Point. The beach is backed by beachfront houses wedged between the main road and the beach, with houses also located on the point. There is a small car park toward the southern end of the beach. Waves average less then 0.5 m and break across a wide, low gradient low tide bar and beach.
Beach Length: 0.5km
