The northern side of the Bellarine Peninsula between Point Henry and Point Richards contains 22 km of north facing, low energy shores. For the most part, these are backed by sandstone and clay bluffs between 5 and 40 m high. At the base of the bluffs are 15 km of narrow, crenulate beaches, usually fronted by seagrass covered sand flats that are between 200 and 400 m wide.
The beaches begin at the Seabrae Caravan Park located at the end of Clifton Avenue. The first very low energy beach (Seabrae-Sands Beach) runs from here to the Sands Caravan Park 2 km to the east. Grand Scenic Beach runs from some rocks just past the Sands, to a low point 1.8 km to the east. Both high tide beaches are shell rich and are only 5 m wide, with grassy, intertidal sand flats extending 200 m into the bay.
