Kelvedon Beach (T 209) extends southwest from Dwarf Point for 2 km, curving to the south in lee of the southern Shelly Point (Fig. 4.37). Two smaller streams and Kelvedon Creek back the beach, the latter forming a small, usually blocked lagoon. The beach faces southeast into the dominant swell with waves averaging over 1 m which maintain a continuous bar usually cut by up to 10 rips, with wave height decreasing in lee of Shelly Point where rips are usually absent. Numerous pebbles and cobbles dominate the sandy beach and form the crests of usually well developed cusps the length of the beach. The beach is backed by a low 100 m wide grassy foredune, which narrows to the south, then the highway. There is a beachside car park on the southern side of the creek, providing direct access to the beach.
