It is immediately adjacent to the north-eastern end of Stockton Beach and the town provides one of the major entry points to the beach here. Anna Bay was named after the bay of the same name which is now located in the adjacent suburb of One Mile.

Many of the tank traps were removed after the war and now feature significantly around the car parking areas at the beach.
