The Bay of Islands forms a part of the Bay of Islands Coastal Park, a 32 kilometre stretch of coastal reserve on the Shipwreck Coast of Victoria along the Great Ocean Road between Peterborough and Warrnambool. It's an irregular, semi-circular bay that faces south-west and has several large sea stacks or islands dotted about the bay, together with rocks and reefs. Most of the bay shore is made up of steep, 10 to 20-metre high limestone bluffs. However, tucked in the eastern corner of the bay and right next to the bend in the Great Ocean Road, is a gorge containing a 70-metre long beach. The beach is used for boat launching and there is a steep ramp and steps descending from the bluffs to the beach. The beach itself is narrow, with deepwater offshore, particularly at high tide. The reefs filter out most waves, with usually calm conditions at the beach.
