Between the Little River mouth and Kirk Point is a 5.5 km section of south-east facing coast containing four low, crenulate, sandy beaches. The first two beaches between the river and Beacon Point are backed by sewer farms. Low basalt and shelly points and reefs form the boundaries between the beaches, with the most prominent being Beacon and Kirk Points. The beaches are low and narrow, and are fronted by intertidal sand flats. These are 500 m wide at the river mouth, but decrease in width to 200 m off Kirk Point.
The only public access to the area is a boat ramp located 1 km north of Beacon Point. The remaining area is restricted due to the sewer farm.
Beach Length: 1km
