Beaches + Coastline

Much-loved natural beauties

Mornington Peninsula beaches are as refreshing as they are scenic.

Take a wander along the soft white sand on the Port Phillip foreshores. Have a splash in crystal clear bay waters. Or brave the breezes at a Mornington Peninsula ocean beach.

Mount Martha Beach

Mount Martha Beach is home to some of the most beautiful bathing boxes on the Mornington Peninsula. This beach is two kilometres long, with Balcombe Creek mouth dividing it into two equal halves: Mount Martha (South) and Mount Martha North.

The Mount Martha Life Saving Club and the yacht club are located at the northern end of the southern beach. South of the club a vegetated bluff backs the beach, with small boat sheds between the bluff and the 50 metre wide beach.

The beach slopes steeply to the shoreline, with usually deep water against the beach face. A deep water trough often runs along the beach, with a broad, shallow, outer bar cut by deeper channels parallel to the beach.

The beach faces north-west, exposing it to westerly winds which, when strong, produce the waves and currents to maintain and move the bars and troughs. Under normal calm to low wave conditions, and at high tide, waves will only break at the beach. However, during strong winds, higher waves break across the 100 to 200 metres wide outer bar and shoals.

A popular beach for bathers, sailors and boaters, with facilities for all. Including beach matting for accessibility (Mount Martha Lifesaving Club) available daily between November and May. Please note beach matting will not always meet the waters edge, during low tides.
