  • Maslin Beach is an untapped beach with amazing views. 5 mins to the mclaren Vale. Voted 6th best beach in Australia 2016. 
  • This is one of the best beaches in Australia without a doubt and recently voted 6th best in the world. Lovely big sandy beach. There is a nude and non-nude section and both are great. 
  • Lovely beach in McLaren Vale which made for a nice (although rather chilly) break from wine tasting. However it was not patrolled and a little rough, so less confident swimmers and tourists, beware
