I am pleased to present to you: Pelican Point Beacg. This tiny little cove makes for one bloody beautiful spot to watch the sun kiss the horizon and then paint the sky in pastel pinks and purples. I have watched many suns disappear and many moons rise from this little hidden peninsula gem in the company of my lover, my best friends and sometimes, just on my lonesome. If you want somewhere to escape, somewhere to walk your pups leash free, or somewhere absolutely beautiful to remind you exactly why you love the Mornington Peninsula so damn much, then this is the beach for you.
Located at the end of Daveys Bay Rd, best accessed from Old Mornington Rd, this true slice of heaven awaits you. If I were to tell you there were lots of carparks, I'd be lying. I think the seclusiveness of this location is what makes it all the more appealing to be honest. Once parked, you can turn left or right, walking along a dirt track lining some of Mount Eliza's finest McMansions- that I would absolutely LOVE to sell one day ha, to either Canadian Bay Beach or to Daveys Bay Yacht Club. This little beach, however, is accessed from the carpark down the stairs. Even this little stroll is unique, the stairs shaded by green and pink, eventually leading to the rugged orange cliffs.
The beach itself is small, beautiful and peaceful. The shoreline is dotted with pebbles, to the right the cliff line becomes rugged and sharp- a great spot to explore, and to the left you are met with a defined border, a nook to pass before the next hidden cove. The sand is rough and yellow, a far cry from some of the sands down south, and the cliffs are burned red from the orange sun. In that magical golden hour, especially now with Autumn's golden hues, they literally radiate. It's truly a magical view that you simply have to add to your "Pen Lifestyle To-Do List"- because I know you've got one, right?
Sometimes after work I am a lazy little sloth, and I realllllt can't be effed watching the sunset. I am THAT happy that this hidden gem exists, only a five minute drive from my home, to encourage me to get off my little bum and go watch one of nature's most beautiful gifts. I think I'll leave you with that. One day, myself, Daniel and my sausage dogs hope to see you there too.
