Safety Beach



Safety Beach, which is 2.7km long, is a very accessible beach, with a foreshore reserve with numerous facilities and a slightly more energetic surf.

Dromana and Safety Beaches occupy the eastern 6 km of the 18 km long Rye to Point Martha Beach. Both beaches are backed by a continuous foreshore reserve, the Nepean Highway and Marine Drive. The reserve contains numerous facilities including a launching ramp and sailing club at Safety Beach.

Dromana and Safety Beaches are more exposed to westerly winds and wind waves than the beaches to the west. Consequently, the high storm waves have steepened the nearshore. As a result, the sand flats that reach 1 km wide off Rosebud progressively narrow to 300 m at Dromana Pier, and 100 m at Safety Beach. Furthermore, the higher waves produce a double bar system at Safety Beach, characterised by alternating bars and rips every 200 m.

Swimming - Relatively safe during calms and low wind waves, however Safety Beach will have higher waves and rips during strong winds.

Safety beach has a General Beach Hazard Rating of 3/10 (Least hazardous). The beach is not patrolled.

Review:


There is a playground at Safety Beach.
