St Kilda Beach is a beach located in St Kilda, Port Phillip, Victoria, Australia, 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) south from the Melbourne city centre. The beach is a sandy beach about 700 metres (2,300 ft) long between St Kilda Marina and St Kilda Harbour along Jacka Boulavard and St Kilda Esplanade.

It is located at the north-east corner of Port Phillip and is protected from ocean swell, though still affected by strong westerly winds. The pier is terminated by the St Kilda Pavilion, an eccentric Edwardian building in the mould of English pier pavilions which is considered of high cultural importance to Melburnians.

St Kilda Beach is one of the 46 bayside beaches which are monitored by EPA Victoria for water quality.

St Kilda Beach water quality is generally rated as good (the highest rating given by EPA), being below 150 orgs/100 m L, which is set in the State Environment Protection Policy (Waters of Victoria) 2003.

The water quality is considerably lower for about 24 hours after rains, which flush stormwater drains.

The reading exceeded the enterococci investigation trigger of 500 orgs/100 m L on 28 December 2009.

In the early years of Melbourne, the Yarra River and the other creeks of Melbourne were used for bathing and for drinking water.
