Natural Attractions

Balnarring Beach, also known as Tulum Beach, features sweeping crescents of coastline and a foreshore reserve which offers safe swimming along sandy stretches of the coast. Race horses are trained on the beach early in the morning six days a week.

Balnarring Beach holds the award for the ‘Cleanest Beach in Victoria’ from the Keep Australia Beautiful committee. Merricks Creek joins Western Port at Balnarring, forming a narrow peninsula of land which is traversed by walking paths and footbridges around the shallow creek. One of the most scenic parts of Balnarring Beach is around Cliff Road which is situated on a bushy headland. A walking track winds its way down the cliff face to the sandy beach below, offering spectacular views along the coast. Balnarring Beach foreshore is a 70 hectare nature reserve bordered by Merricks Creek and Western Port. It forms part of the Western Port Biosphere and internationally recognised Ramsar site (wetland) and is managed for conservation.
