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.
Just beyond Statue Rocks is the small Statue Bay which houses a low energy, 600 m long, north facing beach (1367). The beach is backed by a foreshore reserve, containing a car park in the centre of the beach and access to the beach for high tide boat launching. The main road backs the reserve, with a few houses on the other side of the road. The beach consists of a coarse, steep, sand and cobble high tide beach fronted by low tide rock flats, including a few mangroves on the eastern rocks. The breakwater for the Rosslyn Bay boat harbour extends off these rocks.
