Beach WA 428 is located to the lee of Migo Island and extends for 300 m between the small northern point and the northern rocks of Forsyth Bluffs. The beach protrudes slightly in the centre in lee of a small reef. Waves average about 0.5 m and surge up a reflective beach face, with seagrass growing close to shore. Fishing boats moor in lee of the island and a steep vehicle track descends to the centre of the beach, which is used to launch small dinghies to access the boats. The eastern shores of West Cape Howe National Park extends from Forsyth Bluff to Torbay Head, with West Cape Howe located 2 km to the west. The eastern shore consists of 8 km of steep 100-150 m high calcarenite-capped, metasedimentary rocks grading to granite at the Head. Three protected beaches (WA 429-431) are located below the steep slopes.
