Morgan Beach is a 2.5 km long, south-west facing beach that extends from the western rocks of Cape Liptrap to a series of 40 m high calcarenite bluffs around Arch Rock. The beach is backed by farms and is only accessible via the Munbilla farm.
The beach has both modern and older dune systems extending up to 2 km inland, rising over the bedrock to heights of 100 m. The beach is exposed to the full forces of Bass Strait and receives waves averaging 1.8 m. These interact with the fine to medium beach sand to build a low gradient beach with two bars. The inner bar is usually attached and cut by large rips every 450 m, while the outer bar 250 m offshore has more widely spaced rips. In addition there are several reefs, particularly toward Cape Liptrap, that induce additional currents.
