Atmosphere

Crowds. One of the most crowded beaches on the mornington peninsula, esp in summer. The place stinks of sewrage, esp after a Southerly wind. The water is almost fresh water due to the 450 million litres of waste water pumped out each day.

... - its good melbourne people think that there's no banks down here, reduces the crowds. if you have local knowledge you find banks easily enough. there's always waves somewhere. keep searching pal...
