The Wye River flows out through a narrow valley to deposit the sand that forms this 200 m long beach. A small settlement of the same name backs the beach. The beach is bordered by high valley slopes, with the Great Ocean Road winding behind, and sandstone rock platforms and reefs fringing each end. A caravan park, car park and the surf lifesaving club (founded in 1958) all lie between the road and the beach. The beach faces south-east and receives waves averaging 1.4 m, that produce a wide, low gradient single bar, with strong permanent rips against the rocks at each end of the small beach.
