Helena Street Reef lies offshore from Hawker Beach, Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula in Port Phillip. The scattered reef with sandy patches is in an area with a maximum depth of about 6 metres.
Just north of where Helena Street intersects with the Esplanade in Mount Martha, on the beach side of the road, is a wide steep path leading down to the northern end of Hawker Beach.
Hawker Beach is moderately safe when waves are low, however, still watch the variable water depth off the beach owing to the bars, channels and rip holes. It becomes rockier underfoot when out in the water. Be aware that while the rips are inactive under low waves, the water will contain strong currents. This is a 24/7 year-round dog-friendly leash-free beach.
The Esplanade parallels the shore on top of the bluffs and limited parking is available with signs indicating the trails down to the beach.
