Chelsea Beach is a 1.5 km long, straight stretch of sand between Bonbeach and Edithvale. The beach is located 250 m west of the Chelsea railway station and is home to the Chelsea Life Saving Club, founded in 1917.Further up the beach, there is also the Chelsea Yacht Club. A short pier lies just south of the lifesaving club; and a foreshore park, picnic area and parking are all available immediately north of the club.The beach has essentially identical beach, surf and bar characteristics as adjoining Bonbeach, ie. a usually attached and shallow inner bar, with two outer bars.

Swimming

Safest on the attached, shallow sections of the inner bar in the patrolled area. Avoid the deeper rip holes and troughs. Also, do not jump off the pier as it is surrounded by shallow water.

Surfing

During strong westerlies, wind waves up to 2 m high break over the outer bars, providing sloppy beach breaks.

Fishing

Best off the end of the Pier.

General

A popular summer beach with good road, parking and rail access as well as picnic and park facilities.
