Muirs Beach (T 185) lies on the north side of Coles Bay headland. It curves to the north, then northwest for 1.8 km and faces southwest into Great Oyster Bay. The beach is backed by a densely vegetated low foredune, then a narrow wetland through which the deflected Saltwater Creek flows the length of the beach to break out against the northern rocks. It receives slightly higher waves than the other Coles Bay beaches, with waves averaging over 0.5 m and producing a narrow, continuous bar along the beach. During occasional higher waves rips cross the bar, particularly towards the northern end. There is good road access to either end of the beach, together with a tidal pool and launching ramp at the southern Coles Bay end, while the Coles Bay caravan park is located behind the northern end.
