We moved to Altona 4 years ago and live walking distance to the beach. There's a nice pier but nobody catches any fish there but the beach has nice sand and it's week located near to cafes. Highly recommended

Great to walk along the walkways, lovely views well maintained. A walk on the pier is also good followed by quick coffee or meal at the many cafes. Numero UNO is always good

Beautiful clean beach, bike tracks, dog beach and walking trails. Not forgetting the shopping strip right at the beach and the varied range of cafes and restaurants. You cannot visit Altona without a visit to Hangar 1one2. Best coffee and food in town.
