Make the most of summer: make for destination seaside. Spend lazy days and balmy nights taking in ocean views and sea breezes. Find the best sunset dining spots (BYO fish and chips), fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves and see the sun rise over the water.

From the Great Ocean Road to Gippsland, Victoria's coastline is dotted with seaside spots to explore. You'll find bustling towns brimming with beach-goers, secluded hamlets for relaxing retreats, piers perfect for casting a line and beaches ideal for strolling or surfing.

Stop in for coffee and coast or settle in for the full summer holiday experience. Set out on aquatic and coastal adventures, stroll boardwalks and seaside towns, and embark on cliff-top hikes. Mussel in on seafood events and fishing competitions, kick your shoes off at outdoor cinemas or kick up your heels at a festival.

If you're after a seaside escape this summer, we've got it covered.
