On Station Point, between two sets of rock reefs, is beach 1394. It is a 200 m long, north-west facing strip of low gradient high tide sand, with a continuous, 150 m wide low tide bar. This is the first beach on the island's northern shore to regularly receive low waves. Immediately east of the boundary rocks is the longer beach 1395, a 3.5 km long, low gradient beach that to the east become increasingly dominated by sand flats associated with Cape Keppel and the mouth of a small tidal creek. In lee of the beach is a 500 m wide series of twelve densely vegetated beach ridges, representing a substantial amount of sedimentation and shoreline progradation of the northern end of the island. There is a row of holiday shacks in amongst the casuarinas running for a few hundred metres east of the point.
