The main Taylors Beach (T 80) curves gently to the south between the two usually blocked inlets of Big and Sloop lagoons. It is 3 km long and is exposed to all waves out of the east, which average over 1 m. These maintain a usually well developed transverse bay and rip system, with up to 15 rips spread along the beach, including a permanent rip in front of the mouth of Sloop Lagoon flowing out against the southern rocks (Fig. 4.14). The best beach access is just across the Sloop Lagoon bridge where there is a car park and access track. The beach is backed by a low vegetated 100 m wide foredune, including the road then the lagoons and central wetlands.
