Conspicuous Cliff is east of Walpole's Valley of the Giants, off the South Coast Highway. It is one of only three places around Walpole offering vehicle access to the coast - Peaceful Bay and Manadalay Beach being the others. The cliff's coastal heathland features swamp paperbark and red flowering gum trees in the summer. This tree is well distributed in the region between Frankland and Denmark as well as east of Albany.
In spring and winter, whales are clearly visible from the Conspicuous Beach lookout. Fishing from the rocks is not advised due to the danger of freak waves and swimming is strictly forbidden due to constant rips.
