Albert Park is one of the most popular inner city beaches for swimming and sunbathing. Just 20 minutes by public transport from the city center, it is a narrow strip of sand easing gently into Port Phillip Bay's shallow and calm waters. Palm flanked Beaconsfield Parade frames the beach, which is lined with pedestrian and bike paths, popular with strollers and rollerbladers. There are kiosks, changing rooms and playground facilities that get very busy indeed on warm weekends.
