Something for everyone. Walking and cycle tracks alongside the whole beach with some great views of Melbourne in the skyline along the way. Places to stop off for food and drink. Nice spot to just chill on the beach and relax, beautiful views for the sunset.

Armed with our newly acquired Myki card, we hopped on the tram for a trip to St Kilda Beach. Weather was against us but still enjoyed our visit. The beach did not look too appealing in gale-force wind but we'll reserve our judgement for another visit in sunny calm weather. We walked the pier and visited the penquins in the... More
