Lemons Beach (T 1266) is a slightly curving 1.8 km long low gradient sandy beach located between Petal Point and a central 250 m long 15 m high rocky point. It faces almost due west, with waves reduced by the two islands, lying directly offshore. The waves spill across the 150 m wide low tide bar and low gradient beach. It is backed by a low grassy foredune, then a series of low active and stabilised longwalled parabolic dunes extending up to 2.5 km inland, where they interfinger with the shallow Tregaron Lagoons and older Pleistocene deflection basins. Lemons Creek drains some of the lagoons and flows out in the southern corner of the beach. The access track reaches the slopes above the southern end of the beach, with an informal car park and camping area and a track down to the beach. This end of the beach is also used for launching small boats at high tide.
