The main Sleaford Bay beach (818) faces south-southwest and extends for 5.5 km. Apart from a boundary calcarenite reef in the east, it is a continuous sand beach fronted by a 400 m wide surf zone, containing an energetic inner bar cut by rips every 500 m and a high energy outer surf zone with larger rips. It is backed by an unstable foredune area and then massive active dunes extending up to 2 km inland (Figs. 4.135 & 4.136). 4WD tracks lead through the dunes and to the beach. At the western end it terminates at some low calcarenite bluffs which back the beach for 2 km before protruding across the beach to from the boundary with beach 819.
