Port Willunga Beach
OverviewPort Willunga Beach is one Fleurieu Peninsula's most photographed beaches featuring the remains of the Port Willunga Jetty. Located approximately 35kms south of Adelaide, the beach is famous for its golden cliff faces, crystal clear waters and soft white sands - the type that squeaks between your toes. It is an ideal spot for those long beach walks on the wet sand, with only the sound of waves lapping at your feet.
Nestled on the edge of the cliff top is the Star of Greece restaurant, offering stunning views along the coast and named after a nearby shipwreck. Sections of the hull of the Star of Greece, which came to grief in 1888, remain on the ocean floor and make for a popular diving spot. At low tide parts of the wreck may still be visible from the shore.
Don't forget to also visit nearby Aldinga historic township, emerging as one of South Australia's best villages. From baked goods and cafes to clothing boutiques and local grocers, the strip has a great vibe. There is also great festivities including Fridays After Five (market throughout summer), concerts and small festivals.
