Snug Beach (T 477) is located 500 m to the south and fronts the small town of Snug. The beach faces east-northeast across the bay curving slightly for 500 m. The small Snug River runs out at the northern end of the beach against a 10 m high headland, with 600 m wide Snug Bay on the southern side of the beach. The narrow reflective beach is backed by a 100 m wide recreation reserve, then the township occupying gently rising slopes. A boat ramp is located at the river mouth, next to a footbridge across the mouth.
To the east of Snug Bay are 3.5 km of increasingly steep north-facing shoreline that extends to Snug Point, where it turns and trends south. Most of the shore is backed by Coningham State Recreation Area, with a narrow strip of houses behind the first 2 km of shore.
