Raspins Beach (T 262) extends north from the shifting Prosser River mouth to the northern bedrock boundary where the small Sheas Creek crosses the beach. The 900 m long beach faces east-southeast towards the bay entrance and usually receives low refracted swell and wind waves, with calms common and waves usually less than 1 m. They maintain a narrow low tide terrace to reflective conditions. The beach is backed by the narrow Raspins Beach Coastal Reserve, which contains car parking, picnic and camping areas. The highway parallels the rear of the beach with the Orford golf course occupying some of the inner foredunes to the west. The river mouth shoals vary considerably over time changing the length and width of the beach. In response a crude seawall has been dumped on the beach to protect the reserve.
