The west coast of the Prom has a number of beautiful and easily accessible beaches for visitors to enjoy.

The beautiful sandy beach along Tidal River at Norman Bay is perfect for swimming and surfing, and is a delight for children and adults to explore.

If you take snorkel or scuba gear, you can discover the underwater world surrounding the Prom - all of which is protected in a marine national park. Or you could head out by canoe to explore the park further.

If you're not able to go out in the water, explore intertidal life in the rockpools formed by granite boulders at many of the beaches.

Many beaches at Wilsons Promontory are generally unsuitable for swimming. For example, Squeaky Beach has a strong undertow, a rip and a steep, sandy bottom. Ocean swells or waves can crash along rocky shorelines catching people unaware. If fishing or walking along a rocky shoreline, always keep an eye to the sea.

Coastal sand dunes are fragile environments that are easily damaged. Please stay on the beach or designated walking tracks.
