A low rock platform runs out from Lorne Beach for 1 km to the jetty at Point Grey. Next to the jetty and crossed by a concrete boat ramp is the small, steep Lorne Jetty Beach (337). It receives low surging waves, but is not well suited for bathing. At the point itself, the coast and the Great Ocean Road swing to the south, and immediately south of the point are two beaches. There is a continuous car park behind the Point Grey Beach and a car park on the northern side of Shelly Beach.
The Point Grey Beach (338) extends south for 300 m from the extensive rock platform and reefs of the point to a protruding rock platform. This platform separates it from Shelly Beach (339), which is similar, but only 100 m long. Both beaches are dominated by the boundary platforms and numerous rocks and reefs off the beaches, and both have strong, permanent rips running out through the rocks.
