Number Sixteen Beach (aka Number 16 Beach), a back beach of Rye on the Mornington Peninsula, is reached by driving down the coastal extension of Canterbury Jetty Road, Blairgowrie to the car park.

To the west of the beach there is a series of ledges and gullies dropping off a wide platform, and access is straight off the edge.

See WillyWeather as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

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.
