St Kilda Beach has been modified by foreshore development. Today the main beach is 650 m long. The beach abuts the side of St Kilda Marina in the south, with Brooks Jetty also crossing the southern end, while the St Kilda Pier and breakwater form the northern boundary. As a result of these structures, the beach has widened at each end.The beach is backed by the busy Esplanade, however parking is limited. The St Kilda Life Saving Club was formed in 1914. The two-storey club house is located next to the main beach access point.The beach faces the south-west and receives sufficient storm waves to build a single bar, consisting of predominantly shallow, attached sections, cut by deeper rip channels every 100 m. The rips are inactive unless waves are breaking over the bar.

Swimming

The safest section is from the lifesaving club to the northern pier, which is also a No Boating Zone. Stay clear of the southern pier and breakwater.

Surfing

Strong south west winds will produce large enough waves to break over the bars producing a rideable if sloppy surf.

Fishing

The two piers are very popular locations and give easy access to deeper water.

General

A beach used more by St Kilda locals than visitors, as parking and amenities are limited.
