Edithvale Beach is a 1.5 km long, straight section of sand located between Chelsea and Aspendale Beaches. The Nepean Highway and railway parallel the beach, with Edithvale railway station located 200 m east of the beach and Edithvale Life Saving Club. The club, which was founded in 1919, has a large club house on the beach; however parking is limited to the adjoining streets. On either side of the club are a few boat sheds, with beach-front houses backing most of the beach.The beach faces west-south-west and, like adjoining Bonbeach and Chelsea, has a 50 m wide, sandy beach fronted by usually three bars. The inner bar is usually attached to the beach, while deeper troughs separate the second and outer bars. The bars and currents are only active during strong winds and high waves.

Swimming

Safest on the shallow sections of the inner bar in the patrolled area. Avoid rip holes and the outer troughs.

Surfing

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

Fishing

Best at high tide when you can cast into or find the deeper rip holes and troughs.

General

A long sandy beach with good rail access but limited parking, more popular with locals for this reason.
