Gnoocardup Beach commences 400 m north of the springs and consists of two parts (WA 671 & 672) (Fig. 4.138). Beach WA 671 occupies the first 200 m, extending north from the end of the longer rocky section to a small rock outcrop. Waves average about 1.5 m and break over a mixture of inshore reefs and sandy seabed drained by a permanent central rip. The main 4 WD access track descends part way down the 70 m high vegetated slopes behind the beach, with spurs off to the south and north to the main beach. Beach WA 672 is the main Gnoocardup Beach and consists of a 750 m long sandy beach backed by several active blowouts extending 300 m up the backing slopes and climbing to 50 m. The beach is fronted by either continuous inshore or shoreline rocks and reefs, which lower waves at the shore to about 1 m.
