Gnaraloo Bay beach (WA 1469) commences in the southern arm of the bay, facing north. It soon curves round and trends north-northeast for 7.2 km to the next sandy foreland, 1 km southwest of Nine Mile Bore. The beach is paralleled by a near continuous barrier reef located 1.5 km off the southern corner of the bay, narrowing to several hundred metres along the central-northern section, with some breaks in the reef. Waves remain relatively low at the shore with steep, reflective conditions. A 200-300 m wide band of active dunes parallel the centre of the beach. There is vehicle access to the southern end of the beach, where there is a small car park and an area for launching boats off the beach.
