Adelaide Coast, SA

A beach so near! Just 15 minutes from the city, the waters of Gulf St Vincent wash onto a wide band of fine white sand, which stretches virtually unbroken for more than 30 kilometres.

The metropolitan coast begins at the tip of the narrow Le Fevre Peninsula, created by the Barker Inlet’s sweep of waters, and ends at Sellicks Beach, where the sandstone cliffs begin their run down to the tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

In between are wide sandy beaches and blue waters, reefs, wetlands and estuaries, and the cliffs that glow with the setting sun. There’s a great choice of accommodation along the coast, particularly in Glenelg and Adelaide Shores.
