Ten Mile Lagoon (WA 159) extends from the calcarenite point for 4 km to the northwest, with the entire beach dominated by a near continuous shore parallel beachrock reef, which impounds the lagoon. While the inner lagoon can be relatively calm, three strong permanent rips exit through three gaps in the central-western section of the reef, and beachrock outcrops along the shore (Fig. 3.1b). Use caution if swimming here and stay close to shore and clear of the beachrock. The bluffs and dunes continue the length of the beach, with the northern boundary consisting of a small protruding section of calcarenite. There is a large car park on the bluffs behind the centre of the beach, and a vehicle track off the main road leading to the top of the boundary point, which provides views of Ten Mile and Eleven Mile beaches. The crest of the bluffs behind the beach is studded with large windmills, part of a wind power farm. This is the western most point of vehicle access. In addition it is also a ‘free’ or nude beach.
