Sharks have been sighted at three Victorian beaches as the temperature continues to climb across much of the state.

The first shark was reported a Collendina, near Ocean Grove, about 11.50am on Christmas Day.

The Westpac lifesaver rescue helicopter confirmed the Collendina sighting, then spotted sharks near Anglesea and Fairhaven at 12.30pm and 12.43pm, Life Saving Victoria general manager Paul Shannon told AAP.

It's not uncommon to see sharks along that stretch of coast at this time of year, Mr Shannon said.

All three sightings have been recorded on the VicEmergency app, which Mr Shannon encouraged people to download.

He also appealed for people to swim between the flags at patrolled beaches.

"We've got another hot day tomorrow and if people could swim between the red and yellow flags, in the safe zone, they shouldn't have any concerns," Mr Shannon said.
