Edithvale – A Hidden Beachside Gem

Best known for its long beach of pure white sand and historic bathing boxes, laidback Edithvale is one of Bayside Melbourne’s best kept secrets. With everything you need in walking distance – beach, train, shops, parks, restaurants, cafes, schools, there’s no doubt the small town feel and charm of Edithvale attracts families and couples that all become lifelong residents of this beautiful suburb.

Close enough to the city for an easy commute, yet far enough away to evoke a relaxed holiday vibe, Edithvale has a friendly community spirit, picturesque beach and open green spaces perfect for people seeking a calm and tranquil lifestyle. Throw in a trendy café scene, character filled houses, great schools and sporting facilities, there isn’t much you can’t love about this endearing beachside suburb.


Established in the early 1920’s, Edithvale was once a popular spot for day trips with Melbourne city residents catching the train down on a hot Sunday for a swim at the golden sandy beach. Today, Edithvale has become a highly sought after suburb for families, older established couples, downsizers and retirees alike. A small suburb with an area of only 2.1 square kilometers and population of around 6,000 residents, peaceful Edithvale may hide in the shadows if its more flamboyant neighbours, but that’s just the way the locals like it.
