Suffice to say though, the majority of beachgoers are drawn to the coast nearby the Chelsea Lifesaving Club, and around the pier. This stretch of sea is especially beautiful, with green vegetation between the road and sand offering up a beautiful landscape of blue, green, and tan colours from the water to shore.
Yet, lest this scene be mistaken for a pretty picture alone, Chelsea Beach also sits just off the local shopping centre.
With a great hotel, a number of restaurants and eateries - and also the train just across the road for those coming from further afield - a 'full service' great Australian day at the beach with lunch, cold drinks & Co is easily had here at this wonderful piece of Melbourne.
Chelsea Beach: a wonderful example of Melbourne's seaside.
