A Great Stretch of Sand and Sea
Aspendale Beach appears a little inauspicious at first, but upon closer inspection is altogether special.

One of the geographical features of Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay coastline is beyond Mordialloc the coast changes up - from a number of beaches divided into sections (whether by artificial installation of rock barriers or natural topography) - and so Aspendale Beach at first appears beautiful surely; but otherwise just another stretch of the long expanse of sea and sand from Chelsea to Frankston.

For runners, swimmers, and others who would use the beach for athletics this consistency from one beach to another is fantastic, but can mean too that it may leave a beach-goer tempted to just 'pick a spot' in the sand along the way and not go seek out each beach for its own virtues; Aspendale is testament driving direct to here is altogether worthwhile.

...even on a day before springtime has quite properly arrived in Melbourne, you'll find looking one way offers a beautiful curve of the coast...

...and the other a view for miles with pretty beach boxes, and even a rainbow included if you visit on a day with more cloud than sunshine.

..best of all, whatever the weather the waters are vivid and clear.


In sum, for whatever reason you visit and whatever the season, Aspendale Beach makes a wonderful spot to stop for a walk or a quick run barefoot along the water's edge. And if you do arrive on a bright and sunny Melbourne's Day? With a very good safety rating from Beach Safe it is also a swimming-friendly spot for the whole family.

This is the sort of day when I best like a beach, when the weather is cool and there are not many people about so I can just wander along at a leisurely pace and take in the scenery.

Good description, but is there the eternal problem with parking? And parking fees?
