Beach WA 172 commences immediately west of Munroe Point and trends west-northwest for 3.7 km to a dune-capped, 400 m long rocky section of shore that separates it from beach WA 173. The beach is well exposed to southerly waves, which average about 2 m and break across a 200 m wide surf zone. The western half is and usually has six beach rips spaced about every 400 dominated by rocks in the surf and has four permanent reef-controlled rips, while the western half has fewer m. The entire system is backed by densely vegetated 70 m high, dune-capped, calcarenite bluffs with vegetated dunes extending another 3-4 km inland. The Crisps track reaches the western end of the beach and then runs along the top of the bluffs.
