The beach's southern extremity is a groyne and continues north past a drain pipe until Hale Road dog beach. In front of the beach area near the groyne there is a carpark, boardwalk, grassed area, and cycle path. The groyne has a seasonally occurring sand-bar that forms a left breaking wave that is popular with bodyboarders and surfers.
Floreat Beach is located in the Foreshore area.
