Aldergrove beach terminates at a protruding 1 km long section of low bluffs, with Haslam beach (1191) extending from the bluffs up to Haslam. This 4 km long beach is part cuspate foreland protruding 200 m bayward in lee of a large sand shoal, while at Haslam it narrows as it becomes backed by low bluffs, terminating at a calcarenite reef. A 200 m long jetty crosses the high tide beach, reef and sandflats to provide access to deeper water.
