This is the best beach close to Adelaide. But try and move away from the area that everyone drives their car onto, it's much nicer.

Great family beach. Being able to drive onto the beach is really great. Hot summer days playing in the sun.

I'm from rural south australia, and over here, its all about the beaches and local communities. At Aldinga Beach, you can relax a bit, have a pint, sit on the beach, check out the scenery, its all very South Australian...

We love this beach! You can drive your vehicles on this beach for a minimal cost during peak times. So easy to fill up the car with all the kids boogy boards, cricket bat, chairs, towels, sand toys, sun shade, esky, BBQ and have a great day on the beach! There are a couple of takeaway food shops up on... More

I've lived locally to Aldinga Beach most of my life and it's always a great day out to take your family down or to visit with friends. It's great because you can take your car on and set up camp for the day :)

For a short ride on my motor bike the ride down to aldinga beach is nearly always my choice, ride along the cliffs of port noarlunga, moana down to aldinga, if you go by car you can even drive onto the beach and enjoy the areas best kept secret!

Aldinga beach is typical of Adelaide's southern beaches. Super clean, mostly swell free (insert sad face here), uncrowded and underrated (which most locals are very happy about). Personally I think the south has better beaches on offer such as Maslins, Willunga, Sellicks , and even Port Noarlunga with the reef and occasional swell. Nevertheless people seem to love the cars...

Where else in the world can you drive your vehicle onto the sand and explore miles of pristine coastline and enjoy crystal clear waters to swim in.

Aldinga Beach is a bit of an icon. One of the few remaining beaches you can actually take your car on. It's a safe swimming beach with the depth increasing only gradually. the nearby Saltbush restaurant is good value, but if it's fish and chips you want then Jimmy's at Snapper point (1 km north) will appease your taste buds....
