Avalon Beach is the first public beach since Werribee South. It lies on the north side of Corio Bay and faces due south. The Avalon Beach Road runs due south from the Princes Highway for 6 km to reach the beach. There is a foreshore reserve and a number of houses, fishing shacks and numerous jetties and rock groynes across the low beach. Tidal sand flats extend out into the bay and are exposed at low tide.

Swimming

Only at mid to high tide, when the sand flats are covered.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Most fishers go out onto the bay in boats, with fishing off the jetties and groynes only possible at high tide.

General

This is a popular fishing settlement, with the houses, jetties and moored boats dominating the very low energy beach.
