Beach WA 396 commences immediately to the west facing west across the entrance channel to Oyster Harbour and lies directly opposite Emu Point. The beach is 300 m long, backed by steep vegetated slopes, with numerous large rounded granite boulders littering the beach. The high tide beach is reflective, but grades within a few tens of meters into the deep entrance channel, with its strong tidal currents. While these beaches have no vehicle access, their location opposite Emu Point makes them a popular destination for boat fishers and picnickers. Emu Point forms the western boundary of the 150 m wide entrance to Oyster Harbour. The 1500 ha coastal lagoon is feed by the King and Kalgan rivers. A deep tidal channel occupies the entrance, however scour caused by the waves and tides has resulted in the construction of a 200 m long, rock training wall that parallels the channel at the tip of Emu Point. There are two beaches either side the point, one inside the harbour (WA 395) and one just outside (WA 396).
