Beaches

Port Phillip Bay beaches are not suitable for swimming or surfing until further notice. 
Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has declared poor water quality across all Port Phillip Bay beaches due to flood waters.
Beaches are currently not suitable for swimming, fishing or other recreational activity until the situation is under control.
Stay up to date on changing conditions at the Environment Protection Authority's Beach Report website.

With 192km of coastline, two bays plus ocean beaches there are plenty of options to enjoy the beach on the Peninsula.

The sandy and shallow Port Phillip beaches of Mornington, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento are perfect for swimming. The ocean beaches of Sorrento, Portsea, Gunnamatta and Point Leo offer good surfing, but also have dangerous rips, so care should be taken to only swim between the flags. Before your visit, don’t forget to check current weather conditions and lifesaving services on the Beach Safe website or lookup which beaches are patrolled by Surf Life Saving Austrlalia
