Between the mangrove dominated Yatala Harbour and Red Cliff Point is a 9 km long section of southwest facing shore, dominated by the central 60 m high Mount Grainger, which contain three continuous low energy beaches fronted by wide tidal flats. The highway runs a few kilometers inland, with access to the two main beaches via gravel road and farm tracks. There is also a track to the fishing landing in Chinaman Creek in lee of Red Cliff Point.
The main Mount Grainger beach (558) emerges from the Yatala Harbour mangroves 3 km south to the mount, and continues on around the base of the mount to a small tidal creek on the north side. A vehicle track backs the beach south of the mount.
