"Quiet little Gem!!"

My parents live here and I come to visit them from NYC. Coming home to this place is like a humble gem. The beach is lovely as you go toward Ramsgate, but also pleasant enough to swim in front of all the Restaruants by Bay street! My favorite is Meze's where you'll find under the Novotel Mall best seafood platter ever! The worst is Le Sands restaurant, with the rudest waiters and ordinary food. I love this neighborhood because there's it's very family oriented and people just genuinely want to enjoy the beach, the food and life. Plus it's close enough to the city by train or car!
Pros
  • friendly neighbourhood
Cons
  • High cost of houses

"friendly neighbours"

I have lived in Brighton for the last 6 years. There is a local man who whistles as he walks down Bay street; in my unit block the neighbours look out for one another; my husband has made freinds with some of the workers at coles; we are regulars to many of the restaurants in the Novotel, on Bat street and the Grand parade; very conventient public transport access; very close to the city. Very good suburb for those who are looking for convenience and who do not mind some crowds on weekends.
Pros
  • convenience to shops, restaurants, public tranpsort, close to city
  • friendly neighbourhood
  • Coles in heart of suburb
Cons
  • can get crowded and noisy
  • attracts "young" groups

"West Botany Street"

Although one of Brighton's main streets, West Botany managed to maintain the calm, cool and collected aspect that brighton le sands is famous for.
