Weroona Bay is the Portsea bay beach. It is bordered by Commonwealth land to the west and Point Franklin to the east, faces north and is 1 200 m long. The Nepean Highway and the town of Portsea parallel the back of the bay. The one hundred metre long Portsea Pier lies in front of the centre of the town, and numerous boats are moored in the bay.Waters are usually calm off the beach, with strong northerly winds required to produce low wind waves. Strong tidal currents flow past Point Franklin, but reduce in strength toward the beach. The beach is relatively narrow and steep, with deep water close inshore at high tide.
Relatively safe at the beach, with boat traffic and tidal currents increasing offshore.
The Pier is a very popular location, together with the rocks off each headland.
One of the more popular bayside beaches, with most people content to walk out on the pier, or in summer swim at the beach. The more adventurous can go out on the dive boats from the pier.Read less
