It was a very cold day when we visited so we didn’t go down to the sand but from the lookout you can see that it’s pristine and just a lovely spot

I walked the length of Johanna Beach as part of the Great Ocean Walk recently, what a fabulous beach! Please, anyone who finds themselves privileged enough to be on this beach or nearby Milanesia Beach (accessible only by foot), spend a minute or two picking...More

This was a stunning stretch of beach that is a great stop along the Great Ocean Road. Take your shoes off and wonder along. toliets at the entry and camping ground.

Huge sandy beach which is almost deserted. Mainly because you cannot swim there due to the rips. But it is a natural beach with sand dunes and you can take long walks. Easy parking and access to the beach.

I took friends from the UK here after our trip to The Otway Ranges. The beach was fairly secluded and a beautiful spot to visit and we would certainly return here again.

My first visit was way, way back in the mid-1990s travelling from distant Castlemaine. Since those early exploratory days I have been more than 40 times and Johanna never ceases to ground me. The walk to Rotten Point is a long and tiring one over...More

This is a stunning beach. You can walk for a long, long time without getting to the end. There are toilets in the car park and a lovely camping ground as well (unpowered sites & fees payable). Don’t swim in the water though, way too...More

Just a gorgeous hidden gem of a beach - sand and clear blue sea and nobody else on it! I almost didn't post a review, as you don't want to spoil it. Just blissful.

Visited Johanna beach during a weekend away in Apollo Bay. Easily accessible and not too long a drive from where I was staying. The beach is secluded, away from the riffraff and simply stunning. I could stay there all day! If you're driving from Melbourne...More

Hi there. There is no accommodation close to Beach...where you get a view. You need to head to the closest town, Port Campbell or Great Ocean Road Cottages...and then drive, park and walk. This whole coastline is national... More
