Brighton Beach is a 1 km long, south-west facing beach, lying between the New Street groyne and Green Point. It is paralleled by a seawall and walkway, foreshore reserve and Beach Road. It is backed by Brighton shops and the railway station. The reserve has a large parking area and picnic facilities.The beach is exposed to strong south-west winds and waves and, when they occur, they maintain a 60 to 100 m wide bar. This is either separated from the beach by a trough and/or cut by rip channels. In addition, rocks outcrop on parts of the beach, with more extensive reefs toward Green Point.

Swimming

Relatively safe when waves are low. However, water may be deep off the beach and there are rocks and reefs in places. During periods of strong winds and waves, longshore and rip currents are generated.

Surfing

Strong south west winds will produce surf over the bars and reefs at high tide.

Fishing

There are usually good rip holes against the rocks and often a trough along the beach, plus the southern groyne and rocks at Green Point to fish from.

General

A very accessible and popular beach with foreshore facilities. However beaware of the often deep water and reefs.
