St. Paul's Beach & Jubilee Point.

Continuing on from my previous post...

A short distance from Diamond Bay Road, is another similar road (St Pauls Road) leading to another beautiful stretch of Mornington Peninsula National Park's rugged coastline.

Accessible from St Pauls Road, St Pauls Beach is a small sandy bay bordered by wild cliffs on the Bass Strait coast of the Mornington Peninsula. Rock pools and craggy outcrops on the rock platform make this a wonderful place to explore. St Pauls is not only more difficult to reach (than Diamond Bay Beach), but has higher waves at high tide and more rocks and reefs along the beach.


Some of the stunning views from Coppins Track, looking east towards Portsea and beyond.


The view east from St Pauls Lookout towards Portsea.

Heading west, the Coastal Walk passes yet another scenic detour at Jubilee Point which, on a clear day provides spectacular views of Cape Schanck to the east and as far as the Otways to the west.
Looking towards Diamond Bay & Bay of Islands from Jubilee Point.


If you are on the Mornington Peninsula, the coastal walks of the National Park are definitely worth exploring, even if only parts of them (as we did). The views are extremely picturesque, especially on a clear blue day.
