Beach WA 491 commences on the western side of Irwin Inlet and trends to the southwest, then south for 3.7 km to the northern foreland of Peaceful Bay. The foreland is formed in lee of series of gneiss reefs that extend a few hundred metres offshore. The beach correspondingly receives wave averaging about 1.5 m at the inlet, decreasing to less than 1 m at the foreland. The surf zone is 100 m wide with rips at the inlet, narrowing to a 20 m wide low tide terrace in the south. The beach is backed by several well vegetated foredune ridges, with some older transgressive dunes extending 1 km inland close to the inlet. A road runs along the rear of the beach to the inlet.
