Beach T 439 is a 400 m long west-facing beach located in the northeastern corner of the bay and on the western side of Lauderdale, with the old boating canal forming the northern boundary and bisecting what was once a continuous beach. The beach consists of a narrow high tide beach backed by a low grassy ridge, which protrudes in two places across the northern end of the beach. Flat featureless sand flats extend 700 m into the bay. The South Arm Road runs along the rear of the beach to the bridge across the canal. Beach T 440 continues on the northern side of the bridge curving to the northwest. It is bordered in the south by a grassy bank formed from dredge spoil from the canal, with the road running right behind the narrow beach while sand flats extend into the bay (Fig. 4.77).
