Beach WA 881 extends south of Mindarie Keys Marina for 300m to a small bluff which separates it from the longer Burns Beach. The beach is fronted by near continuous 50-80m wide intertidal rocks and reef backed by dune-draped 20m high bluffs. It can be accessed from the southern Mindarie Keys car park and via various access tracks running through bushland from Long Beach Promenade. Claytons beach is dangerous to inexperienced swimmers due to the presence of submerged rocks and reef, higher wave activity, rips and strong currents.

Swimming

Swimming at this location is not advised. Clayton’s Beach is not patrolled and conditions can often become hazardous to poor or non-swimmers with rips frequently occurring at this location. Waves and submerged rocks also pose a danger to swimmers. Quinns Beach on the northern side of Mindarie Marina is a more suitable beach for swimming and is patrolled over summer.

Surfing

Clayton’s Beach is a known location for surfing. The presence of the southern sea wall of the marina and submerged reef assist to generate a wave that is popular for surfing and body boarding. The shape, size and type of wave cater for a range of surfing competency from experience surfers through to beginners. The reef and rips can pose a danger to inexperienced surfers so check conditions before entering the water.
