Even when the weather is dreary The Bay Trail along Brighton and Hampton Beach is a beautiful place to be, but when it's a crystal clear day the views across the bay are hard to beat. The trail spans the iconic Brighton bathing boxes, the foreshore reserve and the Brighton Bath house.

The trail stays pretty flat – perfect for an easy stroll, but the stairs down to the beach are perfect for ramping up your workout. The beach walk is dotted with benches - perfect chill-out spots to watch the turquoise water. Parking is a bit tricky on weekends, so take the Sandringham line to Brighton Beach station for easy access.
