A discontinuous series of low beaches backed by 200 to 1000 m wide beach ridge plains, often terminating with recurved spits extend for 20 km north of Plank Point. The ridges are backed inturn by a mixture of salt flats and truncated longitudinal dunes, while they are fronted by salts flats between 800 and 1800 m wide, then the deeper seagrass meadows of the gulf. The beaches are generally low, narrow with moderate slopes, with seagrass debris along the swash line and a scattering of mangroves. The only formed access is a 15 km track from the highway to the shacks at Murninnie Beach, the remainder usually requiring a 4WD to access. Beach 603 is a 3.5 km long beach ridge spit, backed by 500 m wide beach ridges and salt flats. It is separated from beach 604 by 4 km of mangroves, with mangroves dominating either end of the 1km long beach, which also has small tidal creeks at either end.
