Nanarup Beach (WA 382) commences 100 m to the west and curves slightly west-southwest for 4.2 km to the usually closed mouth of Taylor Inlet. The first 1 km of beach has scattered beachrock reef lying 50 to 100 m offshore, which combine with the high waves to produce a crenulate shoreline with three strong permanent rips. As the reefs cease, the waves maintain a 100 m wide rip-dominated surf zone, that extends to the inlet, with waves decreasing slightly to the east. The beach is backed by scarped 30-40 high calcarenite bluffs in the east and unstable foredune and blowouts in the west, with vegetated and active dunes transgressing up to 3 km inland. There is vehicle access via Nanarup and along the western shore of the inlet to the inlet mouth, with 4WD access to the firm low gradient beach.
