Mandalay Beach (WA 533) commences at the western end of the high bluffs as they give way to the extensive dune field that has blown out of the beach. The beach is 1.4 km long faces southwest and is exposed to waves averaging over 2 m, which break across the rip-dominated 200-300 m wide surf zone. Scattered rocks and reefs lie off the eastern end, while the western end terminates at a wave-washed granite point. The surf is dominated by permanent rips to either end and usually two strong central beach rips. The backing dunes are actively extending up to 2 km inland, with older vegetated longwalled parabolics extending up to 7 km inland. A gravel road runs out to the western end of the beach, where there is a car park and a wooden platform that provides a commanding view along the beach, with a walkway down to the beach. The beach is popular for beach fishing and occasional surfing, however beware of the strong rips and western rocks. The Norwegian barque ‘Mandalay’ was wrecked on the beach in 1911.
