Beach

Anglesea Beach lies next to the mouth of the Anglesea River and fronts the town of Anglesea. The beach is 400 m long and curves in a south to south-east facing arc between the usually closed river mouth and the eroding rocks and cliffs in front of the bluff-top Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club. Access and parking are available at the river mouth, off the Great Ocean Road, and at the surf club.

The beach receives waves averaging 1 m. The larger ocean waves are reduced as they refract around Point Roadknight. They produce a wide, shallow, single bar, which is usually attached to the beach south of the surf lifesaving club. It is increasingly cut by rips toward the river mouth. The Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1952 and annually averages 12 rescues.

Swimming

A moderately safe beach under typical summer conditions, however avoid the rip against the southern rocks. Best at high tide as waves tend to dump at low tide. Stay on the bar and in the patrolled area.

Surfing

Popular with the less experienced surfers who use the wide, gently sloping surf zone.

Fishing

Beach fishing is best at the river mouth where rip holes are more prevalent.

General

A popular summer beach, offering good parking and access, and a moderately safe patrolled beach.
