Much of the natural environment is similar in appearance to what it would have been like prior to European occupation. The northern portion is bordered by a narrow sand neck and high dunes. These are still primarily in natural condition. A series of rocky headlands and beaches extend from the southern part of the Neck to Fluted Cape, the southern extremity of the bay.
