Coles Beach (T 1132) is located in a semi-circular north-facing bay, bordered by a low cobble point to the west and 20 m high bluffs to the east. The Coles Beach Road and the old railway line parallel the back of the beach, with houses behind. There is a large reserve and car park toward the western end and a second car park at the eastern end, with a low scrubby foredune in between. The beach is moderately well exposed to west through northerly waves and is a popular surfing beach. At high tide it consists of a steep, narrow sand and cobble beach, while at low tide a 100 m wide, continuous bar is exposed, with rock flats, including some large boulders to either end. During higher waves rips form in the lower surf zone.
