Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Half Moon Bay is a bay beach. It has nice sand and provides a sheltered environment for swimming. It's especially popular in summer. Half Moon Bay is a good dog beach, although hours are restricted. A popular feature is the HMAS Cerberus wreck, it's an adventure to swim out and explore.Written 17 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Sandridge Beach is the last beach before you hit the Port of Melbourne, situated in Hobson's Bay [Port Phillip Bay]. New Beach is next door and after that Port Melbourne Beach, plus Princes and Station Piers respectively. Port Melbourne Beach was formerly labelled Sandridge Beach but changed its name. The name 'Sandridge' goes back to 1839 because this area used to be full of dunes/ridges.
The beach is in the form of a crescent, with a promenade along the length of it. There are plenty of places to sit, and trees protect the foreshore, so the wind factor is lessened. The water is relatively shallow, but there is much seaweed, and with the shipping channels nearby it would be a personal choice in regards to swimming here. The beaches here get cleaned regularly and surfaces trowled to clear any dangerous objects in the sand.
There is a kiosk connected to the newish Life-Saving Club, where you can buy snacks, get changed and there is a car park. There is parking along the road free or pay station - be sure to check the signs.
It is a safe and popular place for kayaking, bike riding and other exercises. Quite a few people go fishing off the stone piers/lookouts. These lookouts are a stand out of this beach and give excellent panoramic views of the area—worth a visit.Written 16 October 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We caught the tram from the City and enjoyed a leisurely walk along the seafront from Port Melbourne to St Kilda, a lovely way to send a couple of hours in the sunshineWritten 8 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
