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
