Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On our way to Lorne, we stop by here as the water is so inviting. The beach is beautiful and there’s a few people in the water. Unfortunately pressing for time or will take a dip.

We stopped here on a whim while driving the Great Ocean Road. We saw a place to turn off and park and decided to check it out. It’s a lovely beach-and we only saw 4 other people. We walked along it and my mom found some interesting shells in a variety of colors. I’m so glad we stumbled upon this beach!

What a lovely strip of sand. Little or no undertow, but sometimes a fairly strong sideways current, flowing to a rip which is fairly easily avoidable. Good waves for both body, boogie board and board surfing. This is a really popular spot.

Definitely one of the most colourfully named Beaches to be found alongside the Great Ocean Road, Guvvos Beach is more likely to be recognised by its great wooden viewing platform than by its name.

Whist there appears to be very little street signage to advertise this spot it can be easily located & is in fact one of the most popular Surf Beaches in the entire region.

You will find Guvvos Beach approximately two & a half kilometres from Point Roadknight if Lorne-bound & in my experience it doesn't seem to matter what time of day, the large car park is always chock full with visitors.

[A Cracking Place, Whatever the Weather. Spectacular, Unhindered Views]:
Popular within Surfing Circles, Guvvos is called an "open beach" & whilst it has been referred to as not particularly challenging, it has been described as a "nice fun beach break for the intermediate surfer".

Regards swimming, with strong currents, the risks posed by submerged objects & rough surf it is not typically favourable & with no Life Saving Services assigned here it may be safer to reserve your swim until you reach one of the Patrolled Beaches instead.

[Summary]:
Personally Guvvos Beach is one of my all time favourites. Even from the road, catching a glimpse out over Bass Strait here causes one to draw in breath & I was fortunate enough to be passing on a day when it had been raining & noticed a full Rainbow in all of its God Given Glory seeming to both rise & fall directly into the sea in front of the viewing deck.

The Rainbow hit the Ocean appearing to plunge straight under the water & its vibrancy contrasting with the blue set off an explosion of colour that to this very day holds a special place in my memory. Whilst you may not necessarily see a Rainbow when you visit I am sure that your trip to Guvvos Beach with its pounding waves & beauteous vista will be just as memorable.

*** PS: A word to ease any potential confusion:***

There are three [3] successive sections of the Coastline here that are individually classed as Beaches in their own right & I have noticed that many confuse the locations & names.
Easiest way to remember them is this - in order between Anglesea to Aireys Inlet:

[A] The Gulch - No signage at all along the road. An opening in between the bush on the left opens into a substantial carpark. There is a long pathway & wooden bridge over a Gap / ravine that leads through the dunes & onto the foreshore.
[B] Guvvos Beach is the only one with an actual wooden viewing deck. The car park is off road & quite large. A series of wide & deep steps have been created in the sand to the left of the deck & these open directly onto the beach.
[C] Hutt Gully has NO viewing deck & there is just a slight shoulder upon which to park. A narrow staircase to the left - if facing the ocean - will take you to the beach. A portion of fence is set into the bushes and is covered with colourful graffiti.

Thank you for reading this review, I hope that it is helpful. Please refer to the attached photographs as they form a part of this review.
