It's amazing to find a beach so close to the urban area of Melbourne. It's lovely to walk along the beach, or explore the pier area, or watch the kiteboarders in the marina area. There is also a little boardwalk through mangroves and a naturalized area just past the marina. Needless to say that you are also close to lots... More

Nice beach with restaurants and bars scattered across the sea front. At the very end is the pier where you can see the Penguins in the rocks all while enjoying a nice ice cream from the cafe on the end of the pier

We found that there are several ways to get to St Kilda, and the way NOT to get there is on a tram or trams that you need to change at various intersections - so check first. We returned to the city via Toorak and found that the trams were running over 30 mins late and by then it was... More

Just 10 minutes outside of the CBD by tram you can find this beach in the best Melbourne's surburb. Everyday around 6pm it's possible see a lot of blue penguin at the pier. A nice spot to take Melbourne's skyline.

It was a little chilly the day we went to St. Kilda beach but it's a typical beach, nothing fancy. There are some great spots surrounding the beach to grab some food and drinks!

Are you in Melbourne ? Just 10 minutes you are at this bayside suburb driving only 4 miles . The beach got the name of a ship once moored there in 19th century. There is a park with hotels and restaurants around. The sandy beaches with its picturesque bayside setting makes St Kilda a tourist attraction. We had ice cream... More

St Kilda beach is amazing . I loved how clean it is and I also liked how the trees were so close to the beach. Everyone should take a camera and flip flops in case you want to walk close to the beach
