Ocean Beach may refer to a number of beaches:

Ocean Beach (Tasmania)

Ocean Beach is a long stretch of beach running north of Macquarie Heads and Hells Gates on the West Coast of Tasmania. It is close to Strahan and parallel to the Strahan Airport runway. It extends as far north as Trial Harbour and the coast immediately west of Zeehan.

Exposed to the ocean with no landmass at this longitude between it and South America, this beach can be exposed to extreme weather conditions. In serious weather it can have large extended lines of breakers, and a swell at the Cape Sorell Waverider Buoy at up to 20+ metres.

The mist and spray from the surf can at times give the impression of fog.

Whale stranding frequently occurs along this stretch of the West Coast—and can be difficult to remedy due to the isolated location and low population numbers to assist in whale rescue.

It was also the name of a stopping place on the Strahan-Zeehan Railway which was on a part of the railway line where shifting sand dunes often affected the track.

Ocean Beach (album)

Ocean Beach is the fourth studio album by Red House Painters, released in 1995 by 4AD. The album saw the group and Mark Kozelek move toward a more pastoral and folk-influenced arrangement style, in contrast to the lengthy, droning epics that featured on their early albums. Ocean Beach was also the last album to feature founding guitarist Gorden Mack, as well as being the band's last studio album released by 4AD. The album features an unlisted hidden track, referred to as "Brockwell Park (Part 2)" less than 20 seconds after "Drop" ends. The double 10" vinyl release of the album (now long out of print) features the band's acoustic cover of Yes' 1971 hit " Long Distance Runaround." Kozelek would go on to record another version of the song (with electric guitars and an extended outro) for Red House Painters' next album, Songs for a Blue Guitar.

A rarely seen music video was produced for the song "Summer Dress."

An original idea for the album's front cover artwork was a photo of what could be broken pews in an abandoned church, or old beds in an abandoned hospital ward.

Ocean Beach (Western Australia)

Ocean Beach is a tourist attraction located about South of the town of Denmark in Western Australia.

The beach is part of Ratcliffe Bay and is surrounded to the East by the Nullaki Peninsula and a smaller granite headland, Wilson Head, to the East. Wilson Inlet is contained by a semi-permanent sandbar that forms part of Ocean Beach although a bar channel often exists which moves seasonally along the beach.

The beach is patrolled during the summer months from December to April and a lifeguard is on duty for the Summer Holidays (mid-December to Early February). Swimming between the flags at the base of the Surf Life Saving Club is recommended.

In 1993, four Gray's Beaked Whales or Scamperdown Whales (Mesoplodon grayi) were stranded on the beach, three were eventually returned to sea but the last one died.

Ocean Beach (Bluff Harbour)

Original flying boat alighting area in Bluff Harbour, Bluff, Southland, New Zealand. Controlled by the Bluff Harbour Board, was used by the RNZAF for flying boat operations (until 1966) when patrolling New Zealand's southern sub-Antarctic islands. Short Sunderland and Consolidated Catalina aircraft types were regular visitors.

In the late 1950s, Ansett Australia operated four chartered international flights using Short Sandringham flying boats. A local launch, small jetty and customs terminal was provided and passengers hurried onto buses for the short ride to Invercargill. This was an early attempt to open the southern region to mass tourism.

Eventually the flying boat era was replaced by more efficient land based airliners and the alighting area delisted as an airport.
