Not the best beach I have seen but worth a visit in the afternoon and then a stroll in the sunset to see the Pingvins on the pier!

I saw lots of kite surfers. Also some skydivers. The sand isn't fine. They have a lot of trash bins at the beach 👍. It's not wavy for surfing. The water isn't clear. Good enough for swimming or a tan.

Perfect place to relax in front of the beach with your friends, family or even solo! Be sure to check out the penguins at the St Kilda pier.

Take the tram from the city and discover a beautiful part of Melbourne. It’s an easy walk along the foreshore, on well maintained paths. At one end watch the skaters at the skate park. The beach is easily accessible. There is a fascinating solar system...More
