Fairhaven is a small coastal locality on the Great Ocean Road, adjacent to Airey's Inlet. Its beach, Fairhaven Beach, is a popular surfing destination.

The village is a popular holiday destination, with many homes being used for that purpose. It adjoins Fairhaven Beach, which at 6 km long is the longest beach on the Great Ocean Road.

A local landmark is the Pole House, situated on a concrete column 40 metres above Fairhaven Beach. The original house, built in 1978, was demolished in 2013 after the owners thwarted a bid to list the building on the Victorian Heritage Register. In 2013–14, a house was rebuilt on the existing pole, to a modern design along similar lines.
