Seaspray is a small coastal town situated towards the southern end of the pristine Ninety Mile Beach, 32 kilometres south of the large inland town of Sale.
Seaspray's commercial hub is its general store which is located at the junction of Foreshore Road and Lyons Street, providing postal services, takeaway food and fishing gear. The town's caravan park is located opposite, stretching along the entire length of Foreshore Road and nestled beside sand dunes with grassy sites lined by Norfolk Pine trees. A recreation reserve with a hall, tennis courts and oval can be found in Futcher Street. Memorial Park, bordered by Buckley Street and Bearup Street, features lawns, BBQ and picnic shelters, a playground and war memorial.
The Ninety Mile Beach is Seaspray's main attraction, offering what appears to be a never ending stretch of blue ocean and vast white sands. Access to the beach is provided at several points along Foreshore Road including at the Seaspray Surf Life Saving Club which is perched on top of the sand dunes with a large viewing deck and ramps leading down to the beach. Many other access points along the coast to the beach provide wooden ramps and staircases over the sand dunes and right down to the sand, some integrated with picnic tables and viewing decks.
Merriman Creek skirts around Seaspray's western edge, opening up to a wide waterway as it meets the Ninety Mile Beach. Near the mouth of the creek is a fishing platform and shelter, accessed by following Trood Street and Foreshore Road to the car park at the end. The creek has formed an island further upstream which can be reached via a walking track which comes off Buckley Street. The island has expanses of lawn and is lightly treed, making it an ideal spot for some quiet fishing or a walk along its several pathways.
Shoreline Drive follows the coastline from Seaspray on its 27 kilometre long journey north-east towards the beachfront town of Golden Beach. It skirts around the small holiday community of The Honeysuckles and close to the shoreline of the typically dry Lake Reeve.
