Saltwater Creek Beach blocks the entrance to Saltwater Creek and its small meandering lagoon. Low bluffs and reef flats form the southern boundary, with a narrow, red, basalt dyke called Penguin on the northern border. Scattered holiday houses and car parks lie at each end of the 1 km long beach, with cleared farmland surrounding the central creek. Most of the beach is backed by a low, well-vegetated foredune. It receives low waves and has a relatively steep beach dropping into deep water, particularly at high tide. Reef flats only border the southern bluffs.
