Beach WA 1597 occupies a 1.9 km long curving northwest-facing embayment bordered by the low bluffs to the south, and the subtle foreland at the southern end of Jims Beach to the north. Reefs extending 500 m offshore fringe either end of the beach, with a shallow gap in the centre resulting in the embayed shoreline. Waves break heavily on the boundary reefs, and most waves are attenuated through the gap with low waves at the shore, and reflective conditions the length of the beach. It is backed by foredune ridges to either end, which narrow to the centre, where the Wobiri and Jansez access tracks reach the shore.
