Hi,

Agree Brighton for calm water or St Kilda itself. For Surf you are going to have to head to Phillip Island or the Surf Coast.

Cheers,

It depends on your definition of "nice". As mentioned above, St Kilda beach is very popular. The links below features many popular Melbourne beaches, some of which are continuous from St Kilda beach. Half Moon Bay is one of my favourites

I've never seen such a thing on a Melbourne beach...or any Australian beach for that matter. Maybe I just go to the wrong type of beach. We are more a bring your own type of beach going people here.
