Hubby is visiting melbourne on business and we are planning on 4 nights beforehand together in either Melbourne or Mornington Peninsula. I am looking for somewhere relaxing to stay; definitely want to be close to relaxing swimming beach. Not looking for the gliz side of Melbourne (done that) but needing somewhere to just lie in the sun, swim in the sea & chill. Do we go down to Mornington Pen? If so, which beach areas are golden, sandy and nice swimming? Or is there somewhere closer into Melbourne that would offer the same..wondering about Sandringham area? All comments and suggestions gratefully received. We will get a rental car for transport.
