Stretching in a five kilometre arc from the mouth of Myall River to Yacaaba Headland, the beach is one of the fifteen Significant Open Coast (Hazard) Locations identified by the NSW Government.

These are sites where public and private assets as well as important habitats may be at risk from coastal processes.

MidCoast Council allocated emergency funds to renourish the beach in front of The Boulevarde, from Guya Street to Kururma Crescent.

Specialist machinery spread the sand to reprofile the beach which is an important step to minimise the impacts of future storm events.
