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 cliffs to the south.

Stick to the north side of the beach - the south is an unclad beach (unless that's your kind of thing!). The view is breathtaking looking of the ocean and the rocky outcrops to the south. Definitely one for the picture album, especially at sunset.

Maslins Beach is 5 kilometres of golden sand, heavy-duty walking, sand castle perfect, early morning horse riding and unclad swimming at one end, a top 10 amongst Aussie beaches and deservedly so. Bare buff bathers have a haven at the end of the bay where a sign marks the boundary of choice- go south to strip off and north to... More

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. The north end of the beach is family friendly. There is no food or drink service so come prepared. The view... 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

What a great beach, hidden down south of Adelaide. Amazing views from the cliff tops. A steep climb down some stairs to get to the beach which may hinder some travellers, however lovely to sit at the top taking in the views. A picnic area, bbq area and playground. Plenty of drinking taps to get fresh water on a hot... More
