  • I visited the beach with my husband and two kids aged 3 and 2. The beach is about 30 minute drive from our home, so it is local and convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our time, the tide was low so there was a small little section with warm water where the kids played and splashed. When we went into the lager beach the water was nice with small waves that came into the shore that we played and jumped over. There were also lots of families and kids at the beach which showed me that this is a family friendly beach. The beach itself is nice, there was seaweed washed up which did make it look a little dirty. The beach also offers locker hire and lifeguards. Around the area there are lovely coffee shops and a fish and chip places. If you are local or staying nearby the beach is nice to go hang out, swim and play. I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way for this beach as Melbourne/Victoria has so many other beautiful beaches. If you are after a picturesque beach this is not the one.
  • I was recommended to go to this beach by a fellow mum as it is closer to the North. Good decision to come here as the beach was not too crowded and the sand was clean. We were greeted by the picturesque beach with a line of kite surfers in the ocean. The long pier was a very nice walk for us. Do hold on to your hat as the wind is really strong and it will blow off your hat! I am already counting down the days when I next come to the beach.
  • It's quite a beautiful beach on a sunny day with clean water and decent crowd. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby serving good food. Lifeguards available when needed. Not a lot of activities though. Good for family day out with kids.
  • There's too much sea weed.... but has calm waters which is good for young kids to enjoy the beach
  • Quite a nice beach.. pine lined foreshore, wide sandy beach and the shallow sea helps all to get in there and take a dip in safety. Family fun
