An impressive bay with sandstone cliffs and blue water
Diamond Bay received its name after the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It is located on the Mornington Peninsula. The bay has an impressive display of sandstone cliffs that have been transformed into quirky designs by the hands of time. To add to its already stellar personality and help serve as an inviting beach, the water in the bay is a clear shade of blue.

Once you get on the walking tracks head east to St. Paul's lookout where you'll get a breathtaking view of the Bay of Islands, a collection of tiny rock islands located near the bay. Heading west will take you to Jubilee Point. When you're near the Bay of Islands if you look to the left you'll see a natural arch (see below). It took me a while to spot the arch because the cliffs beyond it were giving it some proper camouflage.

If you're daring enough to carefully make your way down the side of the cliff, you'll see the arch in all its splendor. Looking through the arch is like looking into a portal that leads into another dimension, it's something to awaken your senses.

Just step outside.

How to get there: When heading towards Sorrento on Melbourne Road, turn left into Diamond Bay Road.

Amazing photography! I was actually there taking photos on Sunday but unfortunately they don't look as good as yours. I agree with you that the views from St Paul's lookout are stunning.

I've seen a similar formation like the sandstone was in the Blue Mountains in the Wind-Eroded Cave. Cool article
