The main Yallingup Beach (WA 716) extends north of the car park for 1.3 km to the beginning of a section of steep calcarenite bluffs and backing slopes, which rise to 173 m at Wardanup Hill. The curving beach faces west with wave height increasing up the beach.
In the more protected southern corner waves average about 1 m and break across a low tide terrace. Wave height increases up the beach as the surf zone widens and is cut by strong permanent rips against the central reefs and usually a beach rip to either side.
The reef area provides good surf, but is hazardous for swimmers. The main settlement and rows of houses back the southern part of the beach, with the surfers car park in lee of the main central reef break. Some active dunes extend north of the car park before the bluffs and rock platforms begin to dominate the shore to the north.
