Get on, in or close to the Ocean whilst staying at these awesome YHA hostels, guaranteed to inspire you to hit the coast and make the most of our amazing beaches and experiences
Southern Australia boasts an unbeatable diversity of wild rugged coastline scenes as well as miles of stunning tranquil beaches with relatively few people. And the adventures and activities available are world renowned - so why not get in on the action?
On the southern coast of the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula, just 90 minutes from Adelaide is the beautiful historic town of Port Elliot where watching whales in winter and learning to surf in summer are just the very start.
The very barefoot chic Port Elliot Beach House YHA is unlike any other hostel you've ever seen. This beautiful historic building has had a stylish makeover and boasts views over the Southern Ocean most could normally not afford. Watching whales from the balcony is the ultimate in relaxation. If you have a little more energy, walk along the coastal trails to get a closer look at these majestic gentle creatures.
If you're an adventure junkie, a seafood lover or both, then Port Lincoln is the town for you. Play with the big fish by day - sharks and sea lions - and dine on the local delicacies of oysters, tuna, crayfish and squid, to name a few.
Port Lincoln YHA is an experience in itself. With its life size replica of a shark and cage for land loving photo opportunities, giant tuna mural, their very own bar, great activities, amazing seafood paella nights and above-and-beyond service, you'll want to stay longer and make the most of this amazing area.
