“Tired and crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

They re-did the swimming enclosure some years ago but it's looking a bit tired again. Very crowded on hot days and I'm not certain about water quality. The high diving board is dangerous and has resulted in numerous injuries over the years, and kids jumping off the boardwalk into the open sea have also suffered some horrendous injuries - too horrific to go into here but ask the locals if you must know.

“A trip back in time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013


Having been born in Geelong, Eastern Beach was my favourite place to go in the summer. I am so pleased to see it hasn't changed and the council has kept it in great shape. Also wonderful to see the crane fountain in use. I felt very nostalgic walking around the promenade.

“Absolutely Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

It was a very family-friendly beach with free swimming pool and all facilities. It was very clean and well maintained, and there were even lifesavers inside the small kids area. We had a wonderful time, and would not hesitate to do it again!
