Williamstown Beach is located just south of the Williamstown Railway Station. It is also backed by the Esplanade, making it a very accessible beach. A foreshore reserve is located at the eastern end and contains the Anglers Club, the pier, a car park, a park and a picnic area. The Williamstown Swimming and Surf Life Saving Club, formed in 1922, is located at the western end next to the Baths. The beach is 550 m long and faces almost due south. It receives waves during strong southerlies. These waves have built a wide, sandy beach fronted by an attached bar that widens to the west. At low tide, it can be a 100 m wade before you can swim off the bar.
