Located in the heart of the Bellarine Peninsula, Ocean Grove Beach is popular amongst locals and tourists alike.
Patrolled during the summer months, the beach is flooded with tourists, whether it be for the surf, sand or sun. The beach is in the top 5 most visited beaches in Victoria. The recent refurbishment of beach amenities means Ocean Grove Main Beach now has quality facilities accommodating everybody.
If surfing is your thing there are some great surf breaks around, or if you're new to the game, why not pick up a board with one of the many local learn-to-surf companies that cater for all abilities, including the popular Disabled Surfers Association.
Up on the dunes there is a kiosk and 'The Dunes' restaurant, which has some great, affordable meals for the whole family with magnificent panoramic views of the beach. Why not enjoy a nice bowl of nachos and a cool beverage while watching the kids swim under the safety of trained lifeguards (but remember, never leave kids unattended by water!!).Check out The Dunes restaurant here!
Of course the beach's popularity can also be a downfall, with it sometimes being difficult to find a park. Walking can be a great alternative to ensure you are not stuck driving around in search of a spot.
Ocean Grove Beach is a great alternative to escape the hustle and bustle of the city on a hot day, take a relaxing walk with the family or build a giant sandcastle. Just a short walk from the Ocean Grove township or a 20 minute drive from Geelong, make Ocean Grove Beach a destination you check out this summer.
