Altona Beach - FURTHER INFORMATION
Altona Beach - Melbourne visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Altona Beach' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Victoria.
Altona Beach is at the end of Altona's main shopping strip, Pier Street, about 500m south of the train station. Altona Beach is a long accessible beach with good facilities at the Pier and reserves at each end.
The beach is very shallow and safe. Intertidal and subtidal sand flats front the beach, requiring a long wade to reach deep water. The Altona Life Saving Club, formed in 1927, is located just east of the pier and patrols a bathing and No Boating Zone, extending 200 m east of the pier.
