A nice place for a stroll

We like walking on our sightseeing and the beach at St Kilda is a nice spot to do it. The boardwalk is good and there are bike trails.

I find this beach is dirty. I've heard the water is not clean either. Also the local youths that hang around are very intimidating

cool bars and interesting characters and always a bit of a party. We were here in May so didn't swim, but some crazy people were!

It was too cold for swimming while I was there in May, but some people did go out swimming anyhow. The sand is nice and the beach is very clean.

It was very windy day and we saw lots of windsurfers. Our main purpose of visit was to see the little penguins at St. Kilda Pier and we were not disappointed. We did not wait till it was fully dark because we had already seen a few penguins out and about by the rocks.

It was a perfect sunny day for strolling along the market stalls showcasing their fantastic wares. Bought some beautiful handmade earrings and a Dr Who tshirt our eldest son absolutely loved and has been looking for everywhere. The only negative was trying to find a parking spot as so many people were there but, all in all a lovely experience... More

Great time spent walking amongst and looking at the various stalls, nice selection of truck food to taste & the local arts and crafts were very nice, I brought some of the locally made Turkish delight which although was for the week had been devoured a lot quick than expected - the nieces really like it as well,

St Kilda beach attracts lots of visitors all year round. You will see people going for a run, walking their dog or simply going for a meal with friends... It offers plenty of space to relax and/or exercise, once finished make sure you have a coffee and a tasty meal :)
