San Remo Front Beach- A north facing 200 m beach running from the pier towards the start of the bridge. The beach is backed by a grassy foreshore reserve and good picnic facilities. Ocean swell does not usually reach the beach, with only small wind waves lapping at the narrow, steep beach face. Caution must be taken when swimming or bathing next to the pier as strong currents are frequent. For beach conditions and safety click here.
San Remo Back Beach- A 500 m long beacg that faces south-west overlooking the channel and across to Phillip Island. Tucked away at the back of San Remo, this beautiful bay beach is a relatively low wave bay, providing a nice bathing beach and scenic views, however strong tidal currents can occur. On high tide the beach can get deep quickly and the beach can often be awash. An ideal beach for stand up paddle boarding, sunbathing and wind surfing. This beach is not patrolled.
