As Melbourne is less than 70km away, Safety Beach is a popular getaway spot that offers beautiful scenery and outdoor recreation opportunities for both residents and touristsFull summary As Melbourne is less than 70km away, Safety Beach is a popular getaway spot that offers beautiful scenery and outdoor recreation opportunities for both residents and tourists

The coastal road known as Marina Dr separates housing and commercial areas from the beach and the foreshore. The beach, in fact, is known as one of the best on the Mornington Peninsula.

It’s also a popular space for families as it is safe, peaceful and quiet, plus there are education and shopping options available in neighbouring Dromana (an area also known for its wineries).

Safety Beach’s calm bay is also a drawcard for families. 

As prices for houses have fallen by 5% in the past three years and only increased by 1% in 12 months, Safety Beach offers investors the chance to buy before it experiences its next growth spurt.

Properties on Palm Tree Dr are popular due to their proximity to the beach.
