Fodor's Review

While there is no surf to speak of, this half-mile stretch of sand still remains one of the country's most liveliest beaches as it's close to bars, restaurants, and hotels. While most people like to hang out on the sand, windsurfing, sailing, rollerblading, and beach volleyball are other popular activities. Two iconic landmarks—St Kilda Baths and St Kilda Pier—are close by and give visitors something to do in those blistering hot summer afternoons. The Sunday foreshore market is just minutes away as well. Best for: partiers, swimming, windsurfing. Amenities: food and drink, toilets, parking (fee).
