Altona Beach forms the southern boundary of the town of Altona, with the Esplanade paralleling the beach. The Altona Railway Station is located 500 m north of the beach, and the beach is crossed by the 500 m long Altona Pier. The Altona Life Saving Club, formed in 1927, is located just east of the pier and patrols a bathing and No Boating Zone, extending 200 m east of the pier. The beach runs roughly east-west for 3 km from the point at Frazer Reserve, past the town to the western drainage channel, called Laverton Creek. Most facilities are located near the pier and lifesaving club. There are also picnic areas in foreshore reserves at either end of the beach. The beach is widest near the pier, but narrows west of the groyne, which is located 100 m past the pier. Intertidal and subtidal sand flats front the beach, requiring a long wade to reach deep water.
