Beaches around Port Fairy

The main beach at Port Fairy extends from the town centre for about 6km to the north. In summer the swimming conditions are moderately safe, as the waves tend to be smaller and rips less frequent and intense. However, you should always swim in the patrolled area between the flags, and avoid the northern end of the beach where rips can be more intense. Surfers can also find some decent beach breaks along the beach.

There are several smaller beaches located along Ocean Drive, which front the Southern Ocean. Because they are more exposed to the strong swells, they are generally not recommended for swimming.
