The main Richardsons Beach (T 180) curves for 1 km to the north between the northern rocks of Honeymoon Bay and a low rocky outcrop that separates it from the northern beach (T 181). The beach receives some occasional low swell and more often wind waves generated across the larger bay. These maintain a lower gradient reflective beach backed by a continuous low vegetated foredune, then the main access road, with a wetland behind. Camping areas are located behind both ends of the beach and the Freycinet Lodge is located above the southern end of the beach.
