ALTONA BEACH

Altona Beach is a beach located in Altona, Victoria, Australia. It is a very quiet beach and safe one.  It has a pier to the West. It is best for swimmers to partake in aquatic activity on the eastern side of the pier, which is patrolled regularly by lifeguards in the summer.

The end of Altona Pier, is a common fishing spot for many local anglers who live around the area. The western side of the Pier is a great place for kite surfing and it is fairly common to see lots of these surfers in the water throughout the year. Body Boarding and Surfing are not recommended at Altona Beach as for most of the year, the water is fairly calm, and small waves will only appear whilst a strong southerly is blowing.

The past few days we have been experiencing some Summer weather in Melbourne so it is not surprising to see people flocking to the beaches.

  2. I'd love the shallow water, but the deep holes would scare the bejesus out of me! (I'm afraid of water!) Love the photo of the starfish!
