Beach T 129 commences on the southern side of the small boundary point against which Hughes Creek breaks out across the beach. The beach continues south for 350 m to the longer usually blocked mouth of Marsh Creek, which is deflected northward to the rear of Lagoons Beach. The two creeks result in an unstable largely unvegetated beach system, with only a central section of low grassy foredune. The rip-dominated surf zone continues south along the beach, with additional current prevailing when the creeks are open.
