Brighton Beach Tips (4)

Brighton Beach

Further south along the bay from St Kilda is the upmarket suburb of Brighton, Brighton Beach and its famed sweep of colourful beach huts.

Its quite an exclusive place, the more so because there is virtually no development on the beach front aimed at tourists - simply upmarket homes and one or two boutique hotels. But 5 minutes walk from the front is Bay Street and a great selection of restaurants and cafes. But most head to the beach and the sweep of colourful huts, where, on a sunny day, the colours stand out against blue skies, blue sea and the yellow sands.

Getting to brighton is also fairly easy - the Sandringham line from Flinders Street station will get you there in about 20 minutes.

A day at the beach....

A day at Brighton Beach is always a lot of fun. The sand and water are clean, and its a very laid back atmosphere. Beach Huts line the beach, each with their own unique painting on them. You can also catch a glimpse of the city from the end of the beach.

Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach is home to the famous beach huts. The beach isn't too far from Melbourne city, and is a great place to relax. The water was too cold for Queensland girls, even in February, but if you're keen the water is a great place to cool off. The beach huts give the beach an old fashoined feel.
