St Andrews Beach is named after the backing holiday settlement and can be reached via a winding route through the houses and dunes. This terminates at a small car park in the dunes above the centre of the 2 km long beach. The Mornington Peninsula National Park runs in a strip between the houses and the beach.Like all the beaches along this section, it is dominated by moderate to high waves, sand, reefs and rocks. St Andrews has rock along several hundred metres of the beach, with reefs also outcropping in the surf. Combined with the waves, which average 1.8 m, they produce several strong, permanent rips against the rocks and reefs.
This is a hazardous, rip dominated beach. Stay close inshore, on the bar and well clear of the rocks, reefs and rips.
There are always beach and reef breaks along St Andrews, with the best conditions occurring in a moderate swell with north-easterly winds.
An excellent beach for beach fishing. Permanent rip holes exist against the reefs and gutters along the rocks.
An exposed, high energy beach and surf; most suitable for experienced surfers and beach fishers.Read less
