While visiting Adelaide we drove down the coast and ended up at Aldinga Beach. It was a very hot January day, 40 degrees. We were so surprised to see so many cars and people on the beach, hundreds of them. The sand is hard and all kinds of cars were able to drive and park on this lovely beach. We... More

This beautiful beach stretches for miles and is plenty wide for a leisurely stroll. When we were there, we only saw a few other people. Near the car park is an open air structure with picnic table that's perfect for a picnic. The drive to Aldinga Beach from Adelaide is easy and takes about 35 minutes.

Just a brilliant beach which allows people to drive on the beach and park. Unbelievable on Australia day. This would be one of the best beaches anywhere. Nice gentile slop3 into the water and beautiful sand.. Have been here and Silver sands many times.

possibly the best beach in south australia, with its wide open foreshore that you can drive on great for the family to set up shade shelters

Beautiful swimming beach that you can drive onto. Great for kids and boogey boarding. Local take away shops on the Esplanade make great fish and chips to eat on the beach too :)

The beach was long, but it was full of cars/ four wheel drives. I did sit on the beach but kept one eye on the vehicles. It would be very easy to get run over. The sand was dirty and full of rocks, stones and sea weed. The water was cold and the wind blew non- stop! Wouldn't return in... More

Here coloured cliffs meet the sea with suburb walking between the headlands. We were staying for a few nights. The dog leash free area just near our holiday rental had too much seaweed to be a destination but further south was a wide beach with people and dogs. Lovely walks further north at adjacent Port Willunga with its caves cut... More

Please come while you in Adelaide. Not so far away, you can catch the train from Adelaide railway station, and then get off at Seaford station. After that, continue catch the bus 750 to the beach. Easy right? Yes. This is a beautiful beach I ever had in my life so far. Bring your snacks and drinks or your lunch.... More
