Beaches T 3, 4 and 5 are three adjoining crenulate beaches that form the shoreline of Tebrakunna Bay, each separated by sandy forelands formed in lee of the basalt reefs and islets that dominate the 2.5 km wide bay (Fig. 4.3). Beach T 3 commences on the eastern side of the boundary point it shares with beach T 2, and curves to the east for 600 m. It consists of a narrow high tide reflective beach fronted by 300 m wide intertidal sand and rock flats then a 500 m wide series of low bare islets that extend 1 km east into Tebrakunna Bay. The reefs lower waves to less than 0.5 m at the shore. A small jetty and a few buildings are located towards the western end of the beach. Its neighbour beach T 4 curves to the east for another 1.3 km as a relatively rock free reflective beach. Some rock outcrops occur along the beach and the Tebrakunna Bay reefs lie 200-300 m offshore and extend right across the beach to link to the boundary with beach T 5. Beach T 5 continues the sweep of the sandy shoreline for 900 m to the low basalt Lanoma Point. This beach is relatively free of the bay reefs and wave height increases eastward alongshore averaging about 1 m at the point, where it maintains a low tide terrace beach. Beaches T 3 and 4 are backed by a low foredune and a 100-300 m wide series of crenulate foredune ridges, while the northwest-facing beach T 5 is backed by now vegetated transgressive dunes that have been blown out to the east.
