Point Lonsdale Things to Do

    It's the beaches that are the big attraction of Point Lonsdale - one of the closest open sea beaches to Melbourne. Beauty of Point Lonsdale is that it not particularly developed - the backdrop of the Back (Sea) Beach being sand dunes, the lighthouse and, just round the headland, the fishing pier. When a northerly wind blows, the sea beach is beautifully sheltered.

    When I visited this place, saw people on the beach, doesn’t have much waves, somebody was practicing snorkeling...since the water is clear and bluish. I didn’t get inside the water...

    If you climb (walk) to the right of the lighthouse a little bit...you can have a beautiful view of the light house and the sea.

Point Lonsdale Restaurants

    There's a small strip of shops and restaurants on Point Lonsdale Road itself overlooking the grassy foreshore of the Front (protected) Beach. Arguably the best cafe/restaurant is 'Kelp' (certainly the best coffee), open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Contemporary in decor with the food to match - excellent breakfasts. 'Pasquini's' runs 'Kelp' a close second – you can also grab takeaway sandwiches and pies and head off to the beach. And the eponymous Fish & Chip shop is pretty good too.

    Pt Lonsdale has a lovely little beach for swimming and surfing, BUT make sure you swim between the flags!!
    As you can see in this photo there is a dangerous part with an undertow.

    Don't forget to "slip, slop, slap" as the aussie sun can be a killer!! We have a very high rate of skin cancer in Australia.

    Boring little dump, full of elderlies. No pub, dead after 8pm when the IGA shuts. Awake early because that's when the elderlies walk their dogs.
