We went to the beach to see the penguins that come out every evening. Tip: Bring warm layers, as it gets cold at night while waiting for the penguins to come out! Tip #2: The penguins don't come out till after the sun is fully down, so if you are coming expressly for that purpose, plan accordingly!

The weather was cold and windy but that made it more photogenic. Fantastic walkway along the beach filled with restaurants beaches and the pier. Walk the pier to the little cafe at the end. It was like being in the 1920s. Walk to ackland street to check out the continental cakes and cafe scene . And then there's Luna park

We travelled there by tram n got down at the last station. The tram stopped right in front of some cafes. The beach is lovely with calm waters n orange sand. When we were there, it wasn't too busy. There are many cafes n restaurants on both sides of the road where the tram runs. We managed to get a... More

StKilda beach has a distinct vibrancy on a hot summers afternoon. Many people from many places harmoniously sharing a beautiful location just 100 meters from the 96 tram and Acland street. The beach has restaurants that may be premium priced however a short walk to Acland street or nearer will find cheap eats to share on the beach.A great way... More

Good beach for children but lacks amenities such as toilets and showers. Also not easy to navigate the roads by the beach

We stayed just up the road from St Kilda Beach (about 30mins) and we visited twice during our 3 day stay in Melbourne. First day we did the pier and breakwater and then we did the beach are and boardwalk. Fantastic place. Watch out for the mixed traffic on the pathway. We enjoyed strolling and just watching people and the... More

It has hardly changed in years. Used to come here as kids and it still has the charm. One of the best urban beaches is Australia.
