There are cafes nearby so you can top up on your caffine fix otherwise BYO picnic and spend a whole day by one of the beach beaches in the bay. If you're after some shade, have lunch on one of the two picnic tables.
Lunch under the colourful shade
Carrum Foreshore Playground is tucked away although it is right next to the Carrum Lifesaving Club. Reach the beachside play park by car by turning into Old Post Office Lane from the Nepean Highway. You can't see the playground whilst driving so it's easily missed.
Look out for the little blue sign marked 'Beach Parking' just after the train station (if driving from the CBD). Car parking is free for the City of Kingston residents (for those with a free permit) otherwise parking is metered.
The playground is very close to Carrum train station (on the Frankston line) so you could walk to Carrum Foreshore Playground if you wanted to take public transport.
