Relatively clean and never too busy even on hot days!! New bathrooms and showers make it easy for parents of little ones.

This is a good beach with white sand and is fairly shallow and has the benefit of a large park at its rear, good parking and toilet facilities. Probably one of the better beached between Port Melbourne and Brighton.

Elwood beach's wide, clean and groomed sand invites you to jump into the bay and indulge. One of Melbourne's finest.

Great place to relax in the white sandy beach or playing or just floating/ swimming in the shallow water. Family/ Kid friendly beach. Cold water in the middle of summer ( 32 degrees) in comparison to a tropical beach.
