The Channel is a small, 50 m long beach fronted by a near continuous intertidal rock platform, with just a narrow, 5 m wide, straight channel through the centre of the platform. It is located immediately east of the main Cape Paterson Surf Beach and can easily be accessed along the beach. Waves average about 1 m and the beach face is steep and narrow at high tide, and fronted by exposed rock at low tide, apart from the surging channel.
