Are you looking for a great place to stay this summer? If you are then you should include Brighton beach as one of your choices. It is located in a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is known as one of the cleanest beach in Australia. Finding for the best accommodation as well as the restaurants or cafes is not difficult as you can find lots of them on Bay Street which is a walking distance to the beachfront. You will find the different beach huts with beautiful colors. It is not yet well developed, that’s why you can really see clear water and yellow sand.
The “bathing boxes” or the colorful sheds serve as the icon of Melbourne. They are all privately owned. But sometimes (very rare) they are for sale. However, they are very costly and they are quickly sold.
Especially during summer, the beach is being patrolled by the lifesavers to ensure safety, particularly if you will bring your kids.
How to get there?
You will just have to reach Melbourne CBD city centre. From there, you will have to ride a train service on the Sandringham line. The ride will just take 20 minutes and you will witness the beautiful beachfront. There are also some bus services where you can ride going to Brighton beach.
You can either stay in Melbourne or in Brighton beach. There are one or two boutique hotels which you can find in Brighton beach. However, if it is during peak season, you need to make your reservations ahead of time to make sure that you’ll have a place to stay.
What to do?
When it comes to the activities in Brighton beach, the list seems to be endless. You can swim (never miss it!) as it has clear and clean water, especially with the blue clouds and the rays of the sun. If you love adventure, you can also do sailing or power boat riding. It is also a great place for cycling and walking (no wonder I’ve seen some pregnant women walking there. Lols) Do you love sports? You can enjoy playing volleyball and basketball.
Why you should have a vacation?
Having a vacation like going to Brighton beach can give you a rest from your regular daily activities. In this way, you tend to forget your problems and stress due to work, family, and other factors.
You will also have the time to relax and to reflect. Plus, you will be able to see how beautiful life is. Life is so short to be wasted. A vacation even once in a while will be able to let you live to the fullest.
When you travel, you tend to learn so many things like the places, the culture of the people, as well as the history. You will also be able to know how to deal with others and to be sociable. Thus, your confidence will be built.
Lastly, it builds relationship and long lasting memories. Many people don’t like to travel because of so many reasons and one of the most common reasons is the cost. But the memories and knowledge that you will get from it will be worth it every single penny.
