  • This is the best beach ever. It was voted one of the top 10 beaches in Australia and it is. There are three different parking areas. The south part of the beach is the first unclad beach in Australia....  more »
  • A wonderful picturesque Beach, South of Adelaide. There are small waves and sandy beaches with cliffs. There is place for picnics and a playground as well. You can park close to the sands 
  • Horrible beach targeted by sick miserable individuals. Lovely beach but not worth the hassle and drive to get gawked at by others
