Shoreham Beach


Shoreham Beach is in two parts and offers a wide stretch of sand and views across to Phillip Island. The 700 m long Shoreham Beach faces almost due east and Stony Creek flows into Western Port at the northern end of it. A foreshore reserve runs along behind the beach with a picnic area. It’s a fantastic beach for swimming, exploring rocky bays towards Flinders and playing in the creek. At the southern point of Shoreham beach, known as ‘the Pines’ to surfers, surfing is popular off the reasonably exposed point break that has reasonably consistent surf. There is no surf lifesaving offered and so care must be taken.

A tranquil walk below rocky cliffs brings you to another sandy bay located below the sheltered camping ground. This section is known as Shoreham camping Beach. It is 1.5 km long and curves around to face south-east.

Both beaches are very protected and usually have no waves. Extensive sand and reef flats front both beaches and, as a result, the beaches have deep water only at mid to high tide. The tidal flats, and often seaweed, are exposed at low tide.
