Beaches

Peterborough Beaches

Beaches to the immediate west of Peterborough Township are characterized by sheltered coves, grottos and offshore stacks.

The constant twisting and turning of the shoreline means you can find relative shelter in most conditions. Try Wild Dog Cove, Bay of Martyrs, Worm Bay and Crofts Bay. Make use of the walking trail linking beaches between the golf course and the Bay of Martyrs car park.

Caution

Care needs to be taken at all times in the intertidal zone. Rock pools and shelves that are exposed at low tide and in calm seas can be covered in an instant by an incoming tide or a larger than normal wave. A safer (patrolled in summer) swimming option can be found to the east at Port Campbell.
