Somers is a holiday settlement on the bluffs overlooking the Western Passage to Western Port. Somers Beach is 3 km long, running between the eastern bluffs and rocks and the mouth of Merricks Creek. A foreshore reserve backs the entire beach and incorporates the 20 m high vegetated bluffs, with a low foredune between the bluffs and the beach. In places, the shoreline changes have cut into the dune and bluffs and a number of ineffective remedies including a seawall, groynes and car tyres have been used to counteract the changes. The beach faces south into the Western Passage of Western Port and receives mainly low, choppy wind waves and only rare ocean swell. The beach is often narrow and steep with deep water at high tide, and sand and reef flats exposed at low tide. The Somers Yacht Club is located on the beach and small yachts and sail boats are commonly seen off the beach.
