The small settlement of Werribee South on the northern banks of the Werribee River marks the last public access to the coast, until Beacon Point boat ramp 11 km to the south-west. Beach Road runs on the low bluffs behind the beach, and the beach curves around into the river mouth, where there is a park, picnic area, boat ramp and jetties.The 1.2 km long beach is narrow and fronted by 200 to 300 m wide sand flats on the open, east facing coast, with a deep tidal channel along the south facing river mouth section.

Swimming

It is safest on the open beach at mid to high tide. Be careful in the river mouth because of the deep water, strong tidal currents and boat traffic.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

This is a very popular spot to go out into the bay, as well as fishing from the bluffs, river banks and jetties.

General

An accessible and popular beach with good park facilities, the large boat ramp and relatively safe beach away from the river channel.
