Beach WA 1532 is one of the longer beaches along the Ningaloo coast. It starts on the northern side of the 500 m long Daly Hill bluffs and gently curves to the north-northwest, then northwest and finally west-southwest for the final 3 km to Point Cloates, where it terminates (Fig. 4.345). For much of its 15 km it is protected by the extensive barrier reefs located 5-6 km offshore, with waves at the shore averaging 0.3 m or less. The northernmost west-trending section of the beach, called Jane Bay, faces south into Black Rock Passage and does receive higher waves, which as a consequence have deepened the lagoon off this section. Most of the beach is however dominated by a relatively shallow sand and reef-filled lagoon and reflective beach conditions. The entire beach is backed by a mixture of active and vegetated parabolic dunes. They begin as a 1 km wide band in the south where they reach 58 m at Camp Hill, widening to as much as 3 km in the area around Entrance Hill where they reach 74 m, and extend 3.5 km across rear of Point Cloates where they reach 36 m. Because of the dunes access is limited to the northern Four Nile Tanks
