Stapleton Beach (T 269) is located in the next open embayment 1 km to the south. The 400 m long beach faces east and is bordered by a 30 m high sedimentary headland to the north, with the bedrock slopes decreasing towards the southern end, where the small Dead Horse Creek crosses the beach. A few houses are located on the backing tree-dotted slopes, which rise in the south to a 90 m high headland. The Rheban Road runs 100-200 m inland and provides good views of the beach from the northern headland. The moderately steep beach receives wave averaging 1 m, which maintain a low tide terrace, with occasional rips during higher waves.
