Mount Martha is one of the best beaches on the Mornington Peninsula; it's about an hour and a half drive from Melbourne. The beach is 2 kms long, split into two sections by a creek. The locals are trying to save the northern part of the beach, although the government does not seem to be enthusiastic. Mt Martha has some of the best beach-boxes in the State. The Mt Martha Surf Lifesaving Club patrols the beach.

Mt Martha Beach is essentially two zones - the wider and busier sand strip of South Beach and the quieter and smaller North Beach, which is mostly populated in warmer months by owners and friends of the beach boxes. The North Beach suffers seasonal erosion during winter, but sand is generally restored when the winds swing back to the north in late spring and summer. The Federal Government has chipper in to fund remediation works to reduce erosion and protect the beach boxes over the next few years. Mt Martha beach is over the road from the Village, which features great coffee shops and casual alfresco style eateries. Locals like me highly value the village feel at Mt Martha, which contrasts with noisier beach-adjacent strip shopping and dining in centres to the north and south. Also noteworthy is there is a small wooden ramp on which you can load and unload light craft like kayaks and small sailing craft. Definitely useless for jetskis and larger boats as it stops well short of the water line. The ramp was recently renewed. The only trouble is that on warm beach days, the small car park is packed by late morning.

The beach is too crowded and too many noisey visitors who don't understand beach visits. Music blarring, bugs from the scrub, rocks and pebbles in the shallows and with children screaming, as well as no street parking because of the crowds. The beach isn't what it was and sometimes rubbish left by people who don't respect the environment make it not so great. Shame

Look at Mt Martha Beach and you will see families at play. The water is placid and the beach is ideal for making sand castles. The Niorth Martha Beach is eroding, but it's not a threat to the main beach yet. The Mt Matha Village, near trhe beach, has several good coffee shops; a great place for parents to have a coffee while you read the weekend papers..
