Rental Properties in Beautiful St Andrews

St Andrews Beach, or Capri Beach as it was previously known as until the 1960’s, is a small coastal town nestled among the sand dunes between Gunnamatta and Rye. The beautiful waters of Bass Strait make St Andrews Beach a popular surf spot all year round and forms part of a 35 km stretch of beach from Cape Schanck to Portsea.

This town is the perfect spot to stay for people who want to get away from the crowds as it doesn’t have any shopping strips or restaurants which are found throughout the rest of Mornington Peninsula. It’s a great spot for exploring the beach and sand dunes but a short drive to have a nice meal. St Andrews is also home to a golf course which has some of the trickiest greens in Australia.

St Andrews Beach topography

St Andrews Beach has unusual topography and is of scientific interest due to it being the eastern section of the Nepean Peninsula Duna system, known as ‘The Cups Country’. The area is unique in Victoria as usually these dunes are found in long parallel ridges but in The Cups the ridge system has been blown around, forming humps and hollows. The Cups Country is 2,500 ha in total.
