The London Bridge area is the most northern beach in the Mornington Peninsula National Park and borders Point Nepean National Park. This famous arch landform is composed of sandstone and has been formed through weathering action of thousands of years of wind, rain and waves.
A lookout only a short walk from the car park provides stunning views of London Bridge, the beach and the rock platforms below. Beach access is via a steep ramp. A large rock platform provides for great diving and snorkelling. There are rock pools to explore at low tide.
On either side of London Bridge are two high tide platform beaches, backed by 30 to 40 metre high calcarenite bluffs and fronted by continuous intertidal rock flats, with reefs further offshore. Waves average 1.7 metres on the outer reefs, with their height at the beach depending on the tide. The narrow sand beaches are awash at high tide, but fronted by exposed rock flats at low tide.
When conditions are flat and there is no swell, at low tide the rock platforms are exposed. There is a good entry point to the east of London Bridge.
The shallow bay to the west of London Bridge has interesting gullies and plenty of marine life, but can only be dived on exceptionally calm days. The best entry point is at the far western end of the bay.
