Quinns Beach (WA 888) commences at the end of the 10m high calcarenite bluffs that extend 500m north of the Mindarie beaches. The beach continues north for 950m to the tip of the foreland where a low 100m long attached rock breakwater has been constructed. The Quinns Mindarie Surf Life Saving Club, founded in 1982, is located in the centre of the beach just north of the caravan park. The beach faces southwest but is protected from high waves by the offshore reefs, with waves averaging 0.5-1m at the shore. These produce a relatively narrow steep reflective beach, with a narrow bar and rips occurring when waves exceed 1m. There is a strong shorebreak in periods of higher swell which can be a hazard when entering and exiting the water.
