Many of Melbourne's beaches have been shaped and modified. Many of these changes have beautified the beaches, made them more swimmable, and also added greenery and other amenities around the foreshore to enhance the area.
Many of these changes have been fantastic, and some of Melbourne's most renowned beaches - whether Dendy Street Beach with its beach boxes, Half Moon Bay with its Cerberus shipwreck, or Mordialloc Beach with its long expansive pier - have been wonderful.
Just the same though, there remains something special about a beach that is untouched, and appears timeless. Ricketts Point as a noted marine sanctuary is already a popular spot for snorkelers, divers, and other seagoers, but the beach also holds a great appeal to those who just wish to take in a quiet beach on a beautiful day.
One of those spots that fosters a slow pace and breezy approach to an afternoon or weekend, its a great visit for those who wish to take in the view, enjoy the sun, and take in a wonderfully preserved part of Melbourne's coast.
While important to have a read over the Parks Victoria guidelines before having a visit - so as to ensure the area is conserved and maintained - beyond this; all a visit to Ricketts Point Beach requires is some sunscreen.
Ricketts Point: a rare and wonderful Melbourne beach.
