The beach is comprised of brown sand with pebbles along the western section, the beach has suffered from erosion which has exposed the soil and tree roots. There are three old groynes that are now completely submerged. A number of stones that were used to construct the groynes are scattered on the seafloor as a result of storms and increased wave energy that has affected the area. The western of the beach has concrete drain that leads from the main road into the sea. The property has two buildings; a bamboo farmed cook shop and a derelict concrete building that once served as a restroom and changing room for the beach operations.
