Coronation Beach (WA 1100) is a curving then straight 2 km long sheltered beach with a 100 m wide intertidal platform attached to the southern foreland and the shore parallel reefs continuing north 300-400 m offshore. The reefs result in a relatively calm ‘lagoon’ between the reef and shore (Fig. 4.272). The beach is accessible via 7 km long gravel road from the highway. The relatively steep beach is used to launch boats in the ‘lagoon’ and some boats are moored off the beach. These is an informal camping area at the southern end and 4 WD access to the beach. This is a popular surfing and fishing location with a range of breaks out on the southern reef. The northern half of the beach continues straight in lee of the reef to the southern foreland of the Oakabella Creek mouth.
