Currently one of the darlings of the Instagram scene, this much photographed locale offers a group of secluded and spectacular sandy coves set along a rugged steep cliffed coastline. A great stop off if you're driving to the Kangaroo Island ferry.
When thinking of Kangaroo Island, the mind often wanders to the incredible array of wildlife and the rugged and dramatic coastlines. But Kangaroo Island also does beaches, and it does them really well.
Adelaideans are spoilt for choice with 40km of beautiful and easily accesible beaches. Head to the southern coastal suburb of Port Noarlunga and you are in for a serious treat with options for snorkelling, paddle boarding, swimming and, or course, surfing.

Some of the most jaw dropping, wild coastline in the country. Get in your car and drive to Eyre Peninsula's seemingly uncharted beaches. You'll most likely have these wild havens all to yourself.
This surfing mecca is a true treat that not many tourists get to experience. With limited tranport and touring options available, you're going to want to grab a car, pack your camping gear and be one with the surf - and if surf's not your thing - get discovering the sweet little protected beaches and water holes.

The reason South Australia has such a huge coastline is because of the gulfs of ocean making their way further north and creating Peninsulas. Fleurieu Peninsula (pronounced Floo-ree-ow) is home to McLaren Vale, Port Elliot, the Mt Lofty Ranges and some serious beach life.
