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.
