Seven Mile Beach (900) is a 9.2 km (6 mile) long curving beach that initially faces east, then swings round to form the southern, north-facing shore of the bay. It is fronted by sand flats up to 500 m wide, which are dominated by transverse sand ridges, then deeper seagrass meadows. Waves are usually low to calm with swell rarely reaching the shore. Much of the southern section of beach is backed by generally stable transgressive dunes, which have move across the peninsula from Sensation beach, 6 km to the south. Because of the high and irregular dune topography, as well as a 500 m patch of active dunes, the main 4WD track runs along the beach, heading inland at Morgans Landing, where the dune are absent and where the beach trends north. There is also a camping area near the landing.

Swimming

These are all relatively safe beaches, especially those fronted by sand flats. Just beware of the deep tidal channel and strong tidal currents off the tip of Point Longnose.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Best off the northern rocks, or out over the deeper seagrass meadows.

General

Vehicle access to all these beaches is via the main 4WD track. It is a long, often sandy drive, but worth the effort to visit this pristine part of the coast.
