Located on the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay to the south of central Melbourne, Elwood Beach is westward facing and known for its sunsets. At other times of day beachgoers are able to enjoy a flat expanse of golden yellow sand linking lawned areas with the warm, calm waters of the bay.

Not limited to any specific group of beachgoers, Elwood Beach has broad appeal. Its 1300 metre length and good breadth make it popular for games of beach cricket, while when the offshore winds are right kite surfers are a common sight. Others enjoy the paved Bayside Cycle and Running Trail that follows the coast.

One of Melbourne’s least crowded main beaches, Elwood Beach is still able to boast a children’s play area, picnic and barbeque areas, and several refreshment kiosks alongside public toilets and showers along with a car park.
