Beach WA 1897 occupies the shore of the marina, with the groyne forming the western boundary. The 300 m long beach trends east, then curves round to the north to terminate against a seawall that forms the northern shore of the marina, with a second groyne forming part of the entrance. The beach is backed by the yacht club, large car park and is used as a boat and yacht launching ramp. The spoil bank is composed entirely of dredged shelly sand from the harbour channel. MacPherson Drive provides a circuit of the area and access to the 2 km long beaches on either side of the bank, together with car parks and shade areas at both beaches. The 2.7 km long west facing beach (WA 1897) is relatively steep and narrow and fronted by generally deeper water.
