Quininup Beach (WA 697) is a crenulate 1.1 km long beach that in part blocks the mouth of Quininup Brook. The beach extends to either side of the creek mouth, with continuous intertidal rock platforms fronting the beach, apart from an 80 m wide open section in front of the usually blocked mouth. Waves break over reefs off the platforms, with deeper water off the open section, where a permanent rip runs out the channel. The beach is backed by active dunes climbing the slopes to either side of the creek, in places rising to 70 m and extending 500 m inland. There is only foot access to the beach along the Cape to Cape track from Moses Rock. The track follows the beach, before returning to the bluffs that run north of the beach to Cape Clairault, 4 km to the north.
