Fosters Beach in Mornington is a fairly narrow, steep, rocky, west facing beach on the Eastern side of Port Phillip. It's only 80 metres long and the cliffs are steep and unstable so keep to the tracks. There is deep water close inshore at high tide and rips are present when waves are breaking. The main beach area is all rocks.

The Esplanade runs along the top of the 20 to 30 metre high sandstone bluffs behind the beach, and there is a continuous foreshore reserve west of the road.

Parking: Access is via via the Fossil Beach walking track from a small car park opposite #631 Esplanade, Mornington, Victoria 3941 and restricted to a steep slope down the bluffs. After a hundred metres the track branches off to the north to access Fosters Beach (also known as the Fossil Beach Leash Free area). Note: you can also choose to continue further along the track to the equally isolated Fossil Beach.

Fosters Beach is exposed to strong westerly winds and waves. Best dived or snorkelled with light easterly offshore winds. There is deep water close inshore at high tide.

See WillyWeather (Fosters Beach) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Many references to Fosters Beach have it located at Coral Cove by mistake.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
