About Hampton BeachThis is one of the ancient and beautiful beaches of Melbourne. During as early as 1913, the Life Saving Club of Hampton was introduced. Until then, the Hampton Beach was only made of huge expanses of sand. It was during the 1950s that this beach was actually formed when a boat harbour was constructed in this location. Today, the beach is a whopping 900km long and is a huge hit among the locals, who come here for weekend trips. Rocks & reefs, boat harbour, life- saving club and a great ambience are some of the major highlights of this beach today.
