Castle Bellas beach (1383) is a 3.5 km long, low energy beach running to the south-west from Cocoanut Point to the deep mouth of Cawarral Creek, where the beach recurves around into the wide creek mouth. The beach is backed by low, swampy beach ridges and swales used for grazing cattle, and two small creeks drain out across the beach. It is fronted by a low gradient high tide beach, a few low sand ridges and sand flats extending out to the tidal channel up to 500 m offshore. There is a vehicle track to the top of Cocoanut Point overlooking the beach, but apart from the farm tracks there is no public access to the beach.
