At Point Moore the shoreline turns and curves to the north for 800 m as beach WA 1083. Its northern boundary is a prominent sandy foreland tied to a large intertidal reef, which extends 200 m to the west (Fig. 4.267). This boundary and outer reefs lower waves to less than 1 m, which combine with the fine sand to maintain a lower energy low tide terrace along the southern half, with the reef platform fronting the northern half of the beach. There are surfable waves on some of the reefs off the point including one about 1 km out called Hells Gate, the gate referring to a break in the reef used by the fishing boats. A 200 m wide dune reserve backs the beach with a large southern car park, then houses east of Willcock Drive, and the Point Moore lighthouse opposite the car park.
