Mayfield Beach (T 220) is the main bay beach. It commences on the southern side of the small boundary point and curves to the south and finally southeast to terminate in lee of cleared 15 m high Mayfield Point. The beach is composed of fine sand with a low gradient reflective high tide beach and 20-30 m wide low tide terrace, with wave height decreasing to the south. It is backed by a low vegetated foredune, with three houses on the foredune south of the boundary of the coastal reserve. The small Sandy Creek backs the centre of the beach. The highway clips the northern end of the beach then tends inland towards the Buxton River, with access to the southern end of the beach along the Mayfield Jetty Road.
