It's summer time and that means Melburnians finally have the opportunity to enjoy the beach with out the usual temperate winds and cold water chilling us to the bone.
A drive down the Mornington Peninsula makes a great day trip for family, couple, or friends, and Portsea is a lovely spot to finish up. Other than the legendary Portsea Hotel, and quiet picnic areas, Portsea has a splendid beach.
The pier is a great walk for people of all ages and has been host to many weddings due to its picturesque location.
Back out of the water, and the meandering beach is a great walk with stunning views.
You could easily spend hours of your time relaxing, exploring, or grabbing a bite to eat at the Portsea Hotel as you look out over the bay. From experience, it is a great family getaway, a romantic couples retreat, and an adventure for the outdoorsy type.
