At Zilzie Point the coast swings to the south-west, toward Cocoanut Point and Castle Bellas beyond that. At the same time, extensive sand flats associated with the 1.5 km wide mouth of Cawarral Creek lie off the beaches.
Cocoanut Beach (1381) runs for 1 km between Zilzie and Cocoanut Point; a low, rocky point. The beach faces south-east into the Trades, but is protected from high waves by the sand flats. The beach consists of a low gradient high tide beach fronted by low sand flats up to 300 m wide in the centre of the beach. A tidal channel runs along the outside of the flats, coming closer inshore off the two points. The beach is backed by beachfront houses of a relatively new housing estate, with limited access to the beach.
