Do yourself a favour and don't swim around this area. The water can be filthy sometimes, especially after a heavy downpour of rain.

The water at Elwood can be very choppy and is known to have drops and obstacles below the surface. It also has quite a current so if your no a particularly strong swimmer you might be better just padding. The beaches at Elwood are great,...More

Pretty empty beach and great place to watch the sunrise and sunset. Really easy walk from St Kilda and easy to get there from the city or public transport

This area is great for fitness, these are km's of great walking and riding tracks. From St Kilda to Black Rock. Its perfect for friends and family or simply to relax and read a book.

I love heading down to the Elwood Beach for an evening walk. It's a great place to watch the sunset while taking a stroll.

You can't surf of course but this is about as good as it gets for a city bay enclosed beach. Clear water. Wish the sand was finer but you can't have everything. Still had a good time down there with a friend and their family.
