North Beach (WA 852) is a 150 m long sandy reflective beach, free of reefs. For this reason it is a popular swimming beach, with waves usually less than 1 m high surging up the moderately steep beach face. Car parks are located above either end of the beach, with a fenced fishing platform on the northern boundary rocks.
