Sandridge Beach is surrounded by piers and port facilities. However, recent redevelopment of the surrounding area, including new beach amenities and landscaping, have produced a reasonably attractive beach. The beach is very accessible, with good parking. The Sandridge Life Saving Club, founded in 1927, now has a relatively new club house, that houses dressing rooms and a kiosk. A seawall backs the beach with a promenade running the length of the beach.
Construction of Webb Dock to the west has resulted in realignment of the beach. It has been built out at the western end, but eroded toward the east. Today the beach is 500 m long, and faces the south-south-east. It is a relatively protected location, however strong southerly winds generate enough wave activity to build a shallow, 50 m wide sand flat, which is cut by some channels. Surf currents are usually inactive, unless a strong southerly wind and resulting waves are present.
Beach Length: 0.5km
