  • A stunningly beautiful beach with rocky limestone cliffs in strata of orange, white and brown dropping to a wide beach with soft sand, shelving turquoise water and distant views of rolling hills and c...  more »
  • About 30 minutes south of Adelaide this beautiful beach opens suddenly coming by car. It can be accessed by car from convenient parking (crowded) or, much more impressive reddish rocks, from the heights typical, with a flight of steps. Very large and quiet, is characterized by beautiful white sand, clear water and not too cold (strange). Attention folks .... ... half of the beach (South) is frequented by naturists, who just appreciate tourists with camera around my neck. The other feature is the presence of strong currents. Any natural cover. .. even big blinds Curtains Council, in February the Sun is really relentless.!! Can access by bus (about 1 hour 20 min.) from Adelaide.
