Lobster Point is a sloping densely vegetated headland, which forms the southern boundary of 1.6 km long Lagoon Beach (T 343). The beach trends to the northwest and lies 2 km to the lee of 1.5 km long Sloping Island. The beach receives waves averaging about 0.5 m, which pick up a little towards the northern end, with the beach also grading from reflective in the south to low tide terrace in the north. The beach is backed by a 10-15 m high foredune, which has been breached by several blowouts, which are actively transgressing 50-100 m inland. This is backed by the 1.5 km wide 50 ha Sloping Lagoon, which links with the rear of the western Lime Bay beach (T 349). A smaller lagoon backs the northern end of the beach and a vehicle track accesses the southern and central section between the lagoons.
