Bellerive Beach extends for 1.2 km between Second and Kangaroo bluffs. It faces due south down the Derwent and receives very low swell, which maintains a moderate gradient often cusped reflective beach. It is backed by a narrow tree-lined reserve then houses with the Bellerive Oval (a stadium) behind the western end.
After spending about 45 mins on the beach, we spent another 30 mins at a playground outside of the stadium.
Somehow kids will never have enough of playground. They can just go on and on if you allow. :-)
