Number Sixteen Beach (aka Number 16 Beach) is a back beach of Rye on the Mornington Peninsula. There is a large gorge called 'The Divide' cut into the cliffs to the north-west of Number Sixteen Beach.
To the west of Number Sixteen Beach there is a series of undercut ledges and gullies dropping off a wide platform, and access is straight off the edge.
This area consists of a series of low ledges and gullies off the edge of the sea terrace. There are interesting undercuts full of fish. The platform has many wave-worn crevices, some of which are big enough for a diver to enter and contain blowholes exiting at the surface. They are very dangerous and a freak wave can force you through and against the rocks in a potentially fatal way. Those snorkellers and divers wanting to explore further can head around to 'The Divide'.
