Very cozy and elegant beach! It is not as wide and full of people as main famous beaches of Melbourne, but the best for a nice and picturesque environment.

What a brilliant beach! Close to the CBD and great with younger kids. The water is shallow to kids can play in the water. Half Moon Bay is also home to HMVS Cerberus, the last surviving monitor warship, older kids can swim out there.
