Sandringham Beach is a beautiful Bayside beach approximately 20 minutes south from Melbourne’s CBD. It is very safe to swim in good weather, and is patrolled by volunteer lifesavers on weekends and holidays in summer. Visitors are encouraged to swim between the red and yellow flags for added safety.
The Beach Safe website has information on the beach, including weather conditions.
Sandringham Beach is right on Beach Road, and a few minutes walk from Sandringham railway station. There is ample off-street metered parking and some on-street parking.
Sandringham Beach is very clean. Bayside Council cleans it twice per week in summer, and 3191 Beach Patrol (named after Sandringham’s postcode) is a friendly volunteer beach-cleaning group, who meet for up to an hour each month to clean sections of the Sandringham foreshore. Yarra and Bay provide an up-to-date beach report for all major bay beaches, including Sandringham. As with any Bayside beach, water cleanliness can be affected by recent rains – visitors should report any issues to Bayside Drain Detectives.
