North of Five Mile Rocks the beach (88) runs for 700 m to a 15 m high calcarenite bluff. This beach is partly protected by the rocks and reefs off the point, and waves averaging 1.5 m maintain two beach rips with permanent rips at either end. Beyond the bluffs the beach (89) continues for 2.1 km to the cuspate foreland called Euro Point, which has protruded in lee of reefs extending several hundred metres offshore. This section of beach receives higher waves and has an inner bar system usually cut by 5 to 6 rips, together with a permanent rip in lee of the reef. Active sand dunes have moved up to 1.5 km in from the beach.
