Warnbro Beach (WA 796) commences at the sandy foreland and curves round for 8.5 km to the northeast, then north and finally northwest, to terminate at the northern foreland, in lee of the inner northern sand shoal. Wave energy is low at both ends of the beach increasing towards the central section where it averages about 1 m maintaining a steep reflective beach. Towards the northern end the strong summer southwest sea breezes and associated wind waves can form a low tide terrace. The Port Kennedy golf course backs the southern 1 km, with housing development then extending all the way to Safety Bay. All the developments have a foreshore reserve covering the foredune and extending from 50-100 m inland, with the housing estates extending inland. The major developments are at Warnbro in the centre, where the once 500 m wide reserve has been further subdivided, and Waikiki to the north. There is a bike track along the reserve, together with numerous access points and car parks, with a boat ramp in the northern more protected corner.
