Beach T 200 is located on the southern side of Maysons Bluff and consists of a 150 m long southeast-facing beach, bordered by the northern headland with a 50 m long cluster of rocks to the south. It receives waves averaging up to 1 m, which maintain a moderately steep, usually cusped high tide beach and 40 m wide low tide terrace. It is backed by a small hummocky foredune then cleared slopes with a house on the crest of the bluff. There is vehicle access and a small car park behind the northern end of the beach. Coswell Beach (T 201) continues south of the boundary rocks for another 400 m to the next cluster of rocks and boulders that have been deposited at the mouth of the small Stony River. Wave height decreases down the beach, which usually has a continuous 30 m wide low tide terrace. It is backed by a narrow vegetated foredune, and then cleared farmland.
