Coffin Bay is a small but growing settlement located along the southern entrance from Kellide Bay where it joins Port Douglas. The town extends for 3 km along the shore, with the fishing boats moored in the 100 m wide tidal channel which links the bays. The town is bordered by Coffin Bay National Park to the south, Kellide Bay Conservation Park to the east and the bay to the north. It is consequently a focus for not only fishing, but also for visitors to the surrounding parks, bays and beaches.
Along the western shore of the town are located six small adjacent west-facing beaches, each bordered by calcarenite bluffs, and backed by foreshore reserve, access roads and houses. They are all fronted by sand flats, which are 200 m wide in the south, narrowing to 50 m wide in the north.
The first of the beach (924) is 200 m long and backed by the access road to the national park. The second (925) is 150 m long with a narrow reserve then houses.
Beach Length: 0.2km
