Longreach Bay beach (RI 10) us a curving 900 m long beach tied to a 20 m high calcarenite bluff in the west and a series of reefs in the east, with near continuous reefs lying 100-200 m off the beach. Waves are usually low to calm at the shore, which is backed by a 5-10 m high foredune, then holiday apartments on the western dunes. There is a narrow navigation channel through the reefs, which boats negotiate to moor of the western end of the beach. The reef reaches the shore at the eastern end, where a 100 m long detached calcarenite bluff separates it from The Basin.
