The beach at the location is considered hazardous, and there are surf breaks nearby: Injidup Point and Carparks and Pea Break to the north, and the Wildcat and The Window breaks to the south. Cape Clairault break lies to the south of the Cape itself.
By line of sight, Cape Clairault extends out from the coast enough to be seen from Cape Naturaliste, or vice versa, and as a consequence is often cited as a landmark within the range of the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse light.
