Beacon Hill beach (K 14) commences at the southwestern tip of Entrance Point, called Bittern Rock, and extends to the northwest for 1.4 km to the 20 m high red bluffs of Riddell Point. The Broome oil storage tanks sit behind the southern half of the beach, with wooded bluffs behind the northern half. The beach consists of a narrow high tide beach and a 200 m wide intertidal sand beach backed by bright red 10 m high pindan bluffs, with some rocks outcropping along the beach and to either end. The beach receives low waves, usually less than 0.5 m, which form a narrow high tide beach below the bluffs, fronted by 200-300 m wide sand flats. A gravel road runs along the top of the northern half of the bluffs with numerous access points to the beach, but no facilities.
