Anthony Beach (T 975) commences at Eagle Point on the eastern side of Duck Bay and curves to the east for 13.3 km to 500 m wide West Inlet, where a deep tidal channel and tidal shoals extend 1 km off the inlet (Fig. 4.212). This beach is backed by a continuous well developed foredune ridge plain which widens from 400 m at the ends to 700 m in the centre where there are up to 50 m low, closely spaced ridges. The island is linked to the mainland in the centre, with a 4 km road from the Bass Highway terminating at a beachfront car park in the centre of the beach. Duck Bay backs the western 5 km of the island, while West Inlet backs 3 km of the eastern end, with generally low marsh in between. The beach consists of a reflective high tide beach fronted by a low gradient 400-500 m wide ridged ultradissipative system.
