Secluded beach spot in Mount Martha
Hidden along the Esplanade at Mount Martha is a piece of Southern France known as The Pillars, the sandstone rocks present a perfect setting to soak up the summer sun and if you're a thrill seeker maybe lunge into the waveless water below.

It's located between Deakin Drive and Marguerita Avenue, and it's famous for cliff diving. Jumping off the cliffs into the cool water is a summer activity that you need to add to your list, muster up the courage and take the plunge, you won't regret it!

If snorkelling is your forte, there are heaps of rock pools you can venture into, they are teeming with ocean wildlife. When visiting this secret location I urge you to preserve its beauty, most of the rocks already harbour broken glass and plastic bottles, take care of this gift from nature.

HOW TO GET THERE: Drive along the coast on Esplanade, and it's located between Deakin Drive and Marguerita Avenue. Find designated parking near The Pillars as most area are 'NO STANDING' spots.

Who knew there was a place of such beauty so close by. I definitely want to see it but I'll pass on the jump.

The water looks inviting for a swim and your photographs surely do add an extra charm.

Please note parking for The Pillars is at Mt Martha shops - about 1km south... Local residents are getting pretty annoyed with people parking in 'no parking' zones and police are ticketing with $150 fines...
