It is one of the famous beaches closer to the Melbourne city. Therefore, it is crowded. But still you can enjoy the time having a swim or just having a relaxed time on the beach.

There are a lot of tourist in these beach which makes it crowded. Relaxing in this beach is not recommended as you will feel bothered by the so many tourist who takes pictures. The small huts are lovely though.

Forget Glenelg with its high rise and bustle, a brisk stroll south further along Holdfast Bay is the beautiful Brighton Beach. You won't see too many surfers but plenty of swimmers and great cafes along Jetty Road. And the sunsets ..... :-)

The Esplanade Hotel is right on the sea , near the jetty - great food. Lots of eating places on Jetty road (including a nice bakery ) - you will have no problem finding somewhere to eat .
