90 Mile Beach
From the shallow inlets near Port Albert to the wide open lakes of Lakes Entrance lies the Ninety Mile Beach, a 90 mile long stretch of pristine golden sand that separates the Gippsland Lakes from Bass Strait.
It is believed to be the third longest uninterrupted beach in the world - just over 151 kilometres (94 miles) running northeastward from Port Albert passing the coastal towns of Woodside, Seaspray, Golden Beach, and Loch Sport.
This is one of the most natural and unspoilt beaches in the world. The beach lies on the edge of a long slender sand dune and the absence of rocky outcrops or headlands results in a vista of endless sand that stretches as far as the eye can see.
