Dora Point beach (T 93) is located at the western side of the entrance to the 2,000 ha Georges Bay. Strong tidal currents flow through the entrance and maintain a deep tidal channel and extensive ebb tidal delta, which extends a few hundred metres seaward of the beach. The beach is 250 m long and faces east across the tidal shoals and deeper channel towards St Helens Point. Waves are lowered by the point and shoals and average less than 1 m at the beach. While waves are usually low, beach conditions vary with the tidal shoals and tide conditions, with strong tidal current flowing seaward of the beach during the ebbing tide. The beach is accessible by vehicle with the camping area located 500 m south of the beach just inside the bay.
