Brighton Beach is a 1 km long, south-west facing beach, lying between the New Street groyne and Green Point. It is paralleled by a seawall and walkway, foreshore reserve and Beach Road. It is backed by Brighton shops and the railway station. The reserve has a large parking area and picnic facilities.
The beach is exposed to strong south-west winds and waves and, when they occur, they maintain a 60 to 100 m wide bar. This is either separated from the beach by a trough and/or cut by rip channels. In addition, rocks outcrop on parts of the beach, with more extensive reefs toward Green Point.
Beach Length: 1km
