5 of Our Favorite Melbourne Beaches

Idyll is a great big thing in the world’s most livable city.

While it’s around an hour away from the center of Melbourne, it’s always worth it to see Mornington Peninsula’s beach front. Typified as a boutique coastal town, many don’t just spend the day here, they take their holidays here. With waters as transparent as a diamond, sands bright golden to white, and backdrop a lush green, this beach is one of the best places to lay back.


This is one of the furthest beaches from the city that makes the list, but we have to admit, it’s our favorite.

Sorrento Beach
