Weymouth Beach (T 1212) is a curving 1 km long, north-facing sandy beach, with shallow rock reefs and sand off the western end and a low tide bar grading into the tidal shoals of the Pipers River to the east (Fig. 4.273). The beach widens to the east as wave height increases to 1 m at the river mouth. The beach is part of a low 500 m wide barrier that forms the western side of the river mouth. The small community of Weymouth occupies most of the barrier, with a 100-150 m wide vegetated foreshore reserve between the houses and the beach, which includes a large camping ground and caravan park at the western end. A tidal pool and boat ramp are located on the rocky point that forms the western boundary, with a second boat ramp in the river.
