In lee of 1 km long St Kilda Pier and breakwater is a protected beach. The beach has built out over 100 m in lee of the breakwater, at the expense of the southern section, which has eroded back to the seawall. The beach is backed by a continuous seawall and walkway, with Catani Gardens behind the southern half. This is a protected and usually calm beach. As a result, sand flats extend out from the shore.Surf Life Saving Victoria’s State Centre is located here on Beaconsfield Rd.

Swimming

Better at high tide when the sand flats are covered.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Most fishing is done from the pier and breakwater and along the exposed parts of the seawall.

General

A wide sheltered beach.
