One frantic Saturday afternoon on Swantston Street where I caught Tram #16 to St Kilda beach, the sun was sizzling hot. The picturesque bayside beach was a mecca of friendly strollers, picnickers, amateurish fishing people, beachgoers, and some garish swimmers giving the beach a lively flavour of delight. With only the sunset as my goal to go to St Kilda... More

St Kilda beach is in a great location in St Kilda, with a short stroll to the main part of St Kilda. The beach is often chilly, so it is great for recovery training. I have stayed in St Kilda a few times for sports tours, and enjoy using the beach for different training activities.

The beach at St Kilda is lovely. The Esplanade is a great walk / run and the Sunday market nice to have a wander around. There are plenty of cafes for coffee and ice cream

Clean and very family friendly. Lots of people enjoying the beach, throwing balls and playing with their dogs. Calm water and great for everyone. Car parking is a nightmare though. Council lining their pockets by charging to park anywhere nearby. Spoils the whole experience a little

We love going to St Kilda Beach. It's very clean and we could spend our time sitting along the beach while the kids played with the sand. There are many eateries not far from the beach, not forgetting those selling varieties of cakes and pastries but we really enjoyed the fish and chips the most. On weekends, Luna park is... More

This place brings a lot of memories to me, personally mainly because I spent most of my beach experience during summer 2011 here. It could be very crowded during the day but the sunset is to die for. I don't know how they got there but I did found penguins lived between the rocks. I know I will come back... More

There are not others beaches so close from the city, that's why everyone goes there. And that's why you are gonna like it. More for the location and all that surround it, than for the beach/ocean.

Must place to go when you are at Melbourne. Catch blue penguins at St.Kilda pier. Interesting people watching along the beach. Amazing cakes & pastries at Acland Street but seats at the shops are limited.
