Renowned as one of Port Phillip Bay’s most incredible beaches, Frankston Beach has long been a popular destination with day trippers from the city. Go for a paddle, soak up some sun on the beach or take a wander along the Frankston Boardwalk with its fabulous vistas over the Bay and Landmark Bridge. A much-loved heritage feature of the beach, Frankston Pier was built in 1864 and extends out 220m (722ft) across the bay. It’s the best spot for sunset in Frankston, perfect for a late afternoon stroll before watching the sun sink into the ocean. If you don’t feel like heading down to the sand, the Frankston Foreshore is a great sunset-watching place too, with plenty of romantic bridges, restaurants and bars to choose from.
