Banwell Beach (T 241) is located immediately to the south between Fish Point and the slopes of Beckles Hill. The beach is 1.3 km long, faces east-southeast and is exposed to waves averaging about 1 m. These maintain a continuous low tide terrace usually cut by a few rips during higher waves (Fig. 4.40). The beach is backed by a narrow scarped grassy foredune, which increases in height to the south, with the usually blocked mouth of Seabyrne Creek crossing the centre of the beach. A coastal reserve extends from north of the creek to Fish Point, while sloping farmland backs the reserve and beach restricting public access to along the shore.
Beach Length: 1.3km
