Dunksy Beach (WA 431) lies on the northern side of Torbay Head and faces north. It is a 100 m long pocket of sand, backed by scarped vegetated transgressive dunes that have moved over the Head. Low waves surge up the steep narrow beach, with seagrass growing 50 m off the shore. A rough steep 4 WD track descends to the rear of the beach. Between West Cape Howe and Knapp Head is an 11 km wide, open southwest-facing embayment, for the most part exposed to high waves and strong onshore winds. Most of the original beach systems have been eroded leaving two remnants along the southwest-facing shore (WA 432 & 433) and the two Lowlands beaches (WA 435 & 436) tucked in a small embayment at the western end.
