  • Hard to know what to wear with the changeable weather. The place stank. The "locals" weren't friendly or helpful, mostly indifferent or vague.  more »
  • Great place to visit. It was buzzing...lots of little stalls. Loads of places to eat and drink. Theres a small funfair and a theatre. Nice walk along the pier.....great place to waste a few hours!  more »

  • One of the best beaches Ive visited. It gets pretty crowded on the weekend but it's fun. You can catch the beautiful sunset from the pier. If you can just walk through the pier around mid night, if you are lucky you ll find penguins but please no flash photography or any kind of light. The penguins cross from one side to the other and it's one of the cutest thing you ll ever see.
  • Such a beautiful place . People can stay whole day here
  • The wind surf cutler is incredible more then a 100 when I visit. Also, in the sunset if you will walk all the way to the wave breaker you can be lucky and see penguins.
  • A beautiful location with a great beach, restaurants, amusement park and marina...water is crystal clear blue🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒
  • It's one of the things that makes Melbourne such a great place. I've lived here for ten years and I never get sick of the sunsets and awesome vibes
