Sand Island has come into being since dredging of the Queenscliff harbour began in the 1940s. Most of the island has formed in the last 30 years. The dredged sand has been washed northward to form a 1 km series of recurved spits. The dredged Queenscliff harbour channel and entrance wall form the southern boundary. There is a deep channel, with ebb tide shoals extending a few hundred metres into Port Phillip Bay. The beach runs north-east for several hundred metres before curving around to the west. It is steep and narrow, with considerable variation in the extensive offshore tidal shoals.
