Jussieu Bay is an exposed 5 km long southwest facing section of cliffed calcarenite coast, capped by continuous clifftop dunes which have extended up to 6 km inland and to height of 200 m. Along the base of the cliffs are three remnants of a once more continuous beach, all exposed to waves averaging 2 m. Beach 809 is located at the eastern end of the bay, and is a 700 m long strip of high tide sand wedged in between 200 high cliffs and near continuous calcarenite reefs, with permanent rips flowing out of five breaks in the reef across a 300 m wide surf zone.
Beach Length: 0.7km
