Jurien beach (WA 974) commences on the northern side of the foreland and curves to the northwest then north for 3 km, to the first of the groynes. The beach receives waves averaging less than 0.5 m, which combine with the fine beach sand to maintain a wide low gradient beach and inshore, seaward of which are seagrass meadows. A few jetties cross the central and northern end of the beach and boats are launched off the beach. The beach has the central jetties and boating area, with swimming areas to either side. The entire beach is backed by a low foredune reserve, containing numerous recreational and picnic facilities, then the township, with the caravan park centrally located near the main jetty.

Swimming

Both the point and main beach are relatively safe under normal low waves, with the best swimming in the two designated areas and in the boat harbour swimming area. Rips may however cut across the bar following higher winter waves.
