From calm waters to rolling surf beaches to a water wonderland, beach hopping within this fantastic region affords you a different and fun experience every time. Let’s get hopping…
Ocean Grove Main Beach
Take to the waves at Ocean Grove Main Beach. This two-kilometre stretch of beach is fabulous for first-time surfers with its moderate to low beach breaks. During the peak season the beach is patrolled by the surf lifesaving club and with shower/toilet facilities and nearby cafes, you can easily spend the entire day relaxing, surfing and swimming at Ocean Grove Main Beach.
Bancoora Beach at Breamlea
Sitting in a slightly more secluded location, Bancoora Beach extends for one kilometre and is enclosed by rocky points, reefs, sand dunes and native vegetation. A stunning location, the beach is patrolled during the peak season so swimming (between the flags of course) is a great way to cool off.
The Dell at Clifton Spring
The Dell’s sensational setup up provides ample opportunity to walk and picnic. A natural amphitheatre, created by mother nature herself, forms a stunning centrepiece to base yourself from and explore the spectacular surrounds. This is not a patrolled beach.
A towering lighthouse, rockpool ramblings, an infamous stretch of water, an abundance of snorkelling spots, cliff walks, a marine national park… The list goes on and on for the beach discoveries awaiting you at Point Lonsdale. The surf beach is patrolled during the peak season.
Eastern Beach at Geelong Waterfront
Originally built in the 1930s, this beach is something to behold! With a perfect mix of cosmopolitan charm and adventurous spirit, Eastern Beach features an art deco boardwalk, enclosed sea baths, fully fenced swimming pool, floating islands, diving towers, kiosk, changing rooms, BBQ facilities and so much more.
Always swim between the red and yellow flags, as the area between the flags is patrolled by lifesavers. Never swim at unpatrolled beaches and never swim alone. For patrolled beach locations, patrol times, weather, and beach locations visit the Beachsafe website or APP. They have information available in different languages.
