Carsons Beach (WA 1059) commences at the slight foreland 2 km north of Cliff Head and trends to the north-northwest for 12.8 km to the large cuspate foreland called White Point. The foreland has resulted from wave refraction around Leander Reef, located 12 km to the west. The beach receives low waves in the south, with seagrass growing to within 100 m of the shore and with its debris commonly littering the beach. Wave height increases to about 1 m by White Point and a low tide terrace dominates the northern several kilometres of beach. Massive 5-6 km wide northward trending longwalled parabolics back the entire beach. They are generally vegetated in the south, with three large active dunes in the north moving to the lee of White Point. The Dongera-Eneabba railway line runs 1-4 km in from the beach, with the Brand Highway 3-5 km inland, with 4 WD tracks reaching the beach in several locations.
