Victoria's Cleanest Beaches

Port Phillip Bay shot
A trip west down the Princess Freeway is the best choice if you’re hoping to escape this year’s oppressive summer swelter.

Eastern beach - located a few strides away from Geelong’s main strip – and St Leonards beach on the Bellarine Peninsula have been declared as having the cleanest quality water for swimming.

You can find out about the quality of water at your local swimming spot, too. Just click along to our Beach Report and search the map to find out more. You can also follow the EPA Twitter account for regular updates.
