Jurabi Point is a prominent sandy foreland that has prograded 1 km seaward, with beaches WA 1591 and 1592 located to either side of the foreland (Fig. 4.355). Beach WA 1591 is a curving 2.5 km long west-facing beach located between two sandy forelands. It is fronted by a shallow lagoon that grades seaward into the fringing reef system. Waves average less than 0.5 m at the shore and reflective conditions prevail. The beach is backed by active dunes and deflation surfaces that widen to 1 km at the foreland. The dunes are transgressing over the foredune ridge systems that built the foreland. Two 4 WD tracks cross the dunes to reach the beach.
