Brighton BeachAlthough the city of Melbourne, Australia is located in very close proximity to the Southern Ocean, it’s oddly lacking in beaches, in spite of recent reports to the contrary RE: Mariah Carey’s bangin’ new beach bod.

The good news is that even if you don’t have time to visit the incredible Great Ocean Road, you can enjoy beach time without going far outside Melbourne. Take the train from Melbourne’s Flinders Street Station to the coastal suburb of Brighton, and walk toward the water.
