Time Out Melbourne

For a "splash" of colour

Brighton's iconic bathing boxes, 82 to be exact, line the foreshore along Brighton beach. Not only is this beach pretty to look at but it's excellent for swimming and when the wind picks up, it's a pretty decent area for surfing.

Distance from CBD: 15km by car; nearest station: Brighton Beach, 250m
