Rye Ocean Beach
Rye Ocean Beach is a long expanse of sandy beach backed by rolling dunes. The beach has a wide surf zone but the persistent rips, rocks and reefs make the beach highly hazardous for swimming and is only for experienced surfers. It is a popular area for surf fishing in the rip holes. In winter you can sit in comfort in your car in the parking area at the end of Dundas Street and watch the surf roll in from Bass Strait.
