Templestowe Beach (T 133) commences at the smaller rock outcrop and trends to the south for 5.2 km curving towards the southeast in lee of Long Point to terminate at the small sandy foreland in lee of Black Dog Reef. The beach is exposed to moderate waves averaging 1-1.5 m for most of its length which usually maintain a rip-dominated 50-100 m wide surf zone with rips spaced every 200-300 m. It is backed by a near continuous vegetated foredune then grazing land, with a few blowouts towards the southern end. Two small creeks cross the northern section of the beach, with the 50 ha Templestowe Lagoon occasionally breaking out across the southern end of the beach (Fig. 4.23). There are numerous beach breaks along the beach, however the only access is a 4WD track that reaches the shore close to the southern end of the beach.
