Past Middle Brighton Beach, the coast becomes increasingly dominated by artificial structures. A groyne forms the northern boundary of Middle Brighton, beyond which the beach has receded and a seawall has been built. This continues on to the large Middle Brighton pier and breakwater, in lee of which is Sandon Street Beach. Two rock groynes also cross the northern end of Sandon Street Beach.The Middle Brighton Baths and adjacent yacht club both have steep, narrow strips of sand; remnants of once wider beaches. Sandon Street Beach, on the other hand, is protected by the breakwater, and the shoreline has built out up to 100 m in its lee, while erosion to either end has exposed the seawall.Both beaches face west and are exposed to westerly winds and waves, however waves are reduced by the structures. The beaches are usually calm, or have a low shorebreak when waves reach the beach.

Swimming

The Baths are probably the safest place to bathe in Port Phillip, while Sandon Street is usually calm in lee of the breakwater. The best bathing is at high tide, as sand flats are exposed at low tide.

Surfing

Waves are surfed next to the Baths in big south-westerlies.

Fishing

The jetty and breakwater are the best spots, with the exposed section of seawall also giving access to deeper water.

General

Two heavily modified beaches: one now used for pool bathing and sailing; the other enclosed by the pier and breakwater, with boats moored offshore.
