(WA 101) commences immediately to the west and is a relatively straight, 4.2 km long, south-facing beach, which curves around at its western end in lee of two granite outcrops that extend 1 km to the south. It receives waves averaging about 1 m, which maintain a continuous narrow bar usually free of rips. The beach is backed by four stabilising blowouts in the east and centre, with vegetated older transgressive dunes in between, extending up to 1 km inland. Mungliginup Creek reaches the western end of the beach, where it is usually deflected to the east and blocked during the summer months. There is formed vehicle access to the eastern end of the beach, with tracks leading off to a basic camping area and the river mouth. Beaches WA 102 ands 103 occupy parts of the granite headland.
