WEST BEACH BATHERS PAVILION – 330A Beaconsfield Parade, St Kilda West, VIC – (03) 9593 8833

West Bathers Pavillion This place has to be one of the most dog friendly places I have been to. The outdoor seating they have is extensive and right on the beach!

You have the option of sitting under shelter on the deck or you and your furry friend can relax on the loungers on the beach with the sand in your toes – great for relaxing on those beautiful sunny Melbourne days.

They have everything from dog bowls for when your pup gets thirsty, a place for you to tie up your dog if you DON’T have one of those fluff balls like I do who insists on sitting on your lap most of the time.

You can even purchase a doggy treat, the last time we were there it was a Kangaroo stick, and yes our pup LOVED IT. Unfortunately, they don’t advertise the fact that you are welcome to bring your dog there as much as I think they should (and between you and me, *hushed tone* and everyone else reading this – they don’t seem all that excited about your furry friend either – weird right)

It would be great to see them get into the doggy-spirit of the location as it’s on a dog friendly beach – this is definitely a PLUS.

The venue provides you with a blanket for those cooler days when you need to rug up! There are always dogs around as the beach on where this café sits is dog friendly and off lead all year round (except for the environmentally sensitive dune area).

Best part is that it has quite a large sand area so it gives you a lot of space to do your own thing. It’s a fantastic place to socialise your dog!

This venue is also great if you just want a coffee, beer or a nice glass of wine sitting on the sand on one of the loungers and watching your furry friend having a nice run around. It’s a win-win for everyone! I suggest though, it is much nicer on those warmer days, although it has its charms on wintery Melbourne days as well. It really depends on what you prefer.


This one gets a 3/5 from us – only because of the good food and great location.
