Visit one of Victoria's best kept secrets: Ocean Grove's main surf beach.

1. It’s an ocean beach not a bay beach, so you get real surf pretty consistently

2. The waves aren’t ‘bone-crushing’ like most other Victorian ocean beaches

3. It’s patrolled by surf life savers throughout summer/to end Easter/extended according to public needs

4. It rarely has seaweed and when it does, it’s minimal

5. There are no rocks. There are about 700mt down the beach at low tide, heading towards lighthouse

6. It has grass and a promenade with a view of the beach so its great if you’re injured, elderly, don’t want to walk in sand or want to spread your towels out & sit on greenery

7. Good coffee and a newspaper, snacks or full meals at Dunes Café on the beach under redevelopment 2018. You can hang-out there in summer/winter in the cool/warm and enjoy an even better view of the surf & surfing, post redevelopment.

8. It’s cleaner than bay beaches because it’s not in a city-engulfed bay. It faces open sea & King Island.

9. It has a river Barwon River for ‘flat-water’ fun, a hike down the beach or 400mt short-cut inland.

10. AND it’s less than 1.5 hrs drive from Melbourne, 20 min. from Geelong, 40 min. from Avalon Airport.

It just doesn’t get any better than this. Feel free to spread the word

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place on the sea An immaculate and stylish self-contained apartment only a few minutes walk from Ocean Grove beach. Our toddler loved the garden and the beach bucket, shovel etc that are thoughtfully kept stored under the deck for guests his age. The beds are super comfortable, while the kitchen is well-equipped and the living area opens onto a native bush garden. The friendly hosts have thought of everything possible to make this a perfect coastal getaway. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing What a great place just to kick back and chill. We are enjoying our stay, we are looking forward to heading down in warmer weather so we can enjoy the beach as it is a hop step and a jump away. Keep up the good work. Oh fyi the beds are so comfy, it like I am staying in 5 star hotel.
