Things to do in Port Elliot YHA

Wander across the road from your comfy Port Elliot Beach House hostel accommodation to the beautiful Port Elliot beach, where you can surf, swim, kayak, or just relax!

Spend hours whale-watching (winter months), go bike riding, explore the towns of Port Elliot and Victor Harbor, try sky-diving or ballooning!

Take a daytrip to the McLaren Vale wine and produce region, or enjoy a meal at the beach-front Flying Fish Café.

Heading to Kangaroo Island?  Port Elliot is just one hour's drive to the ferry and a great place to recharge your batteries before exploring the amazing island wilderness.

Meet the locals at one of several fantastic pubs or restaurants, only a short walk from your Port Elliot Beach House accommodation. Meanwhile, the 'bright lights' of Victor Harbor nightlife is just a 10-minute drive or taxi ride away.
