North of Brighton and Elwood beaches on Port Phillip Bay and on the east of Hobsons Bay is St. Kilda Beach. It was one of the earliest seaside resort villages of Melbourne in the 19th Century.
Still easily accessible via a short tram ride from the city, its a favourite weekend destination for Melbourne-ites and overseas visitors.
The pier protects a boat marina and has a kiosk.
Getting here is easy from the Melbourne CBD city centre, there are regular tram services from the Melbourne city centre - a short 20 minute tram ride that will take you past the beachfront.
You can find stylish to budget accommodation in Melbourne Australia: luxury hotels to low priced backpackers, including in the Central Business District (CBD - Downtown).
There are even Melbourne bayside resorts, suburb and regional hotels, bed & breakfasts near the beach or in the suburbs, serviced apartments and holiday homes.
