Few things are better than fish and chips on the beach. Somehow the fresh salty air and rolling waves just call for a nice crispy piece of your favourite fish and some crunchy chips. Maybe even some calamari and a potato cake or two. And, given that you're probably in some version of beach wear, an eatery that's pretty casual and not too far to walk would be great.

It doesn't get any better than this

So here's some of my favourite places to get fish and chips which are either at the beach, or no more than across the road from the water. Casual, walk-up, takeaway and/or takeaway with seating, here are some good options for laid-back-Summer-al-fresco eats. I particularly like the ones that have ice cream as well.

Travelling from West to East:


Beach Bites on the Esplanade at Altona is just across the road from the beach and close to Altona Pier. A bonus is the adjoining ice creamery. Beach Bites also often has some interesting offerings such as Kina (sea urchin) and tend to be open when others are not (e.g. last Christmas Day from breakfast time).


The Rotunda on the Esplanade in Williamstown directly adjoins the beach. On the ground level they have takeaway fish and chips on one side and ice cream on the other.

The Kiosk d'Asporto at the other end of Williamstown Beach (near the Life Saving Club) offers fish and chips amongst other delights. And they're pretty much right on the sand.

Port Melbourne

D'lish Fish is located almost on Station Pier (address is 3/105 Beach Street). Technically closer to the water than the beach, they have seating or you can take an interesting stroll down the path past Princes Pier to Sandridge Beach.

St Kilda

Rollos Kiosk near the marina and skate park has fish and chips as well as burgers, pies and more.


In Brighton try Flatheads Fish & Chips at 230 The Esplanade, or the Kiosk at the North Point Cafe

Black Rock

The Cerberus Beach House Kiosk (on the ground level) at Half Moon Bay offers great fish and chips as well as a range of hamburgers. Some seating is available or you can take a short stroll to the sand.

Rickett's Point Beachside Cafe sells fish and chips amongst other goodies in the takeaway part to the left of the front door. There's tables in the parkland around and the beach itself is a minute's walk away.

While these are some of the options for fish and chips on the beach, there are sure to be more. So, if your favourite one isn't included, it would be great if you'd share by leaving a comment below.

Fish 'n Chips are truly the quintessential casual meal and how much more apporpriate could they be than at the beach. Of course, donlt forget to get a little extra for the seagulls.

Can we have an article on beaches with some shade. For example: Brighton beach near Dendy St had shade from beach houses. Some beaches have trees. Beach shelters and umbrellas seem dodgy on windy days so natural shade is good.
