A long beach to walk along. Very open to the weather changes and if windy, Id stay away. There is a lovely cafe nearby which Id highly recommend having a coffee and cake at.

Walking distance from the hotel that i was in and very nice city side beach experience. but it doesn't have many facilities as i have expected to be. it is a beauty plus for the city of Melbourne.

We took the beach path walk from St Kilda to Brighton Beach. It’s about a 4 mile walk and really pleasant. There is a great walking path and a cycle path. Plenty of cafes on the way and wonderful views. Perfect in so many ways.

The St Kilda beach is pristine, the water perfect for swimming. There are restaurants lining the foreshore and in the background you have the Palais Theatre and Luna Park, what more would you want?
