Seacliff Beach (230A) begins amongst the broad rock flats of Mario Rocks. Several hundred metres north of the rocks, the rock flats thin as the sandy beach increases in extent (Fig. 4.59). By Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club and the adjoining Seacliff Sailing Club the beach has almost replaced the rocks and a sandy beach continues to Glenelg (Fig. 4.60). In the south the beach is backed by a park below the old seacliff , then a caravan park and the two club houses, with a car park and boat ramp north of the sailing club. A road and housing then back the beach all the way to Brighton.
The beach itself consists of a high tide sand beach and fronting rock flats south of the surf club, with a shallow sand bar replacing the rocks to the north. Waves are low in the south, increasing to about 0.5 m past the clubs. The bar is usually continuous and rips present only during bigger seas.
