The inlet in turn flows into the sea at Ocean Beach and its usually closed mouth forms the northern boundary of the beach. The southern boundary is the 100 m high Wilson Head. A sealed road from Denmark runs along the western shore of the inlet right to the beach, with two car parks on the bluffs at the southern end above the Surf Life Saving Club. A caravan park is located 500 m to the west just inside the inlet.
The beach is about 500 m long, the length depending on the state of the inlet entrance. It faces east and receives moderate protection from the dominant southwesterly waves. It is backed by moderately steep, vegetated slopes rising to 20-30 m, with the Surf Life Saving Club perched on the slopes and the car park to the rear.
Waves average over 1 m in front of the Surf Club, but rapidly increasing in height toward the inlet. The waves are sufficient to maintain a 100 m wide usually attached bar, with a permanent rip against the southern rocks. The bar detaches from the beach and the rips increase in size and intensive east of the inlet. When the inlet is open strong tidal currents usually flow just off and sometimes along the beach, so be careful as a double tragedy in the southern rip lead to the formation of the Surf Club.
