The Arch is is a unique area of coast where an arch has worn away in the rocks on the shore line to create a prominent feature on the southern coast of the Mornington Peninsula, between Bushrangers Bay to the west and Simmons Bay to the east, towards Cape Schanck from Flinders. There are a number of named boat dive sites nearby including: The Arch, Shark Cave, Swell Shark Gutter, Yellow Wall, The Nursery, and The Dungeons.
Closer in to shore is a shallow reef with what looks like a riverbed of clean white sand winding through it and heading into shore. This is the home of several reef species including sea sweep and magpie morwong. With a maximum depth of 10–12 metres, you an enjoy a safe long dive here on a day when there is little or no swell.
Opposite Yellow Wall is huge bommie dotted with small grottos housing gorgonians of every colour with the occasional blue devil for added contrast.
