Beach T 1138 extends south of the Regatta Point training wall for 1.1 km to the beginning of the Devonport port facilities. It is a narrow, at times discontinuous low energy high tide sand and cobble beach. The north half has a fringe of rock and sand flats extending up to 100 m into the river. These narrow to the south with the southern half fronted by the deep river channel. While waves are low, strong tidal currents flow off the edge of the beach and flats. It is backed by a continuous foreshore reserve, then Victoria Parade and the houses of Devonport. Police Point forms the eastern side of the river mouth. The Police Point beach (T 1139) commences at a small rock groyne on the point and curves slightly to the east for 250 m to the base of the eastern training wall, which curves to the north for 700 m. The river channel clips the western side of the beach, with sand and rock flats widening to 200 m by the eastern end of the beach. Waves are usually very low to calm. It is backed by a grassy reserve and picnic area, then the houses of East Devonport.
