Located on the coast of Louttit Bay, Lorne main beach is the only coastline patrolled during the summer months. The sheltered two-kilometre beach is safer than most, as Point Grey affords the shoreline considerable protection.

Victoria’s premier seaside retreat, Lorne main beach is the perfect place to relax and unwind whilst the saltwater helps to purify the body, mind and soul.
