Edithvale beach is amongst Melbourne’s most beautiful beaches, with access for both locals and out of towners made easy with excellent parking at various locations. Edithvale is bookended by seaside suburbs Aspendale and Chelsea.
In Edithvale, many homes literally sit on the beachfront with unobscured views. The homes in the small cul-de-sacs leading from Nepean Highway to the beach are also rare and this incredible residential beach access is one of Edithvale’s unique features shared only by a select group of suburbs in all of Melbourne. No matter where you are in Edithvale, the beach is not far away.
Edithvale’s Wetlands Trail is great for walkers, the War Memorial at Beeson Reserve is relatively new and certainly an interesting stop before a walk along the beach. Edithvale’s recreation facilities include Edithvale Bowling Club and Edithvale Velodrome. Edithvale is home to the Chelsea Little Athletics Club, and the Chelsea Dolphins Baseball Club.
Edithvale train station sits directly across from a busy retail precinct and there are great cafe’s and restaurants on Nepean Highway and Station Street. Edithvale is also close to Frankston shopping centre and about a twenty-five minute drive to Southland, however because of its immediate facilities and easy access to Mordialloc, Chelsea and Patterson Lakes, Edithvale residents often prefer local shopping.
Edithvale has a strong heritage evidenced by its 1919 established life saving club and the nearby Chelsea Yacht club established in 1938. Edithvale Primary school is one of the best schools in the area and Mordialloc College is a short journey away. Mentone Girls, Mentone Grammar and St Bede’s are also close by.
