Avalon Beach lies on the north side of Corio Bay and faces due south. There is a foreshore reserve and a number of houses, fishing shacks, numerous jetties and rock groynes across the low beach. Tidal sand flats extend out into the bay and are exposed at low tide.

Avalon Beach is also a popular fishing settlement, with the houses, jetties and moored boats dominating the very low energy beach. An ideal location for relaxing and soaking in the sun.
