Port Noarlunga has always been my favourite


ifelife

We like to get on our body boards at the river mouth. When you get in the current it takes you all the way to the beach. Great for kids because it's usually pretty shallow unless you hit the tide wrong


Lady_Scarlaette

Did this last weekend haha the best 👌👌


ifelife

It's so much fun with minimum effort. And the river is normally warmer than the ocean too.


PepperSweet8

Sounds fun!


remember_myname

This is the only answer.


TrippingGrady

Sssshh… Don’t tell the others


bluestonelaneway

The stretch between Henley and Grange was always my favourite for convenience. Just a really nice, accessible, not too crowded beach. The actual best beach is probably down south though. I’m in Melbourne now but the main thing I miss about Adelaide is the amazing metro beaches! You’re all very lucky from that perspective.


ktsimp

We are very Lucky beautiful beaches and close by


ForbiddenPotatoChip

Port Willunga, but Sellicks Beach is also great.


RedBeard210

I went to both this week for the first time and they were awesome. Willunga the best!


Fear_Blind83

Second Valley, it's a little gem of a beach down on the Fleurieu Peninsula.. Carrickalinga and Normanville also have nice beaches.


raticus_usm

Maslins..beautiful beach and never real busy as ppl think its all nudies.


whisperingwavering

I agree with this. Plus, last time we were there, a pod of dolphins came to play.


ifelife

Second this but shhhh. We don't want people to know! It's a great mix of nice and, some gentle waves and the ability to go out a fair way before it gets deep. I've been there on a 36 degree Australia Day and there were still metres of sand with no one on it. It's such a big beach too, I'm not great with distance but must be close to a kilometre from the nude end to the other end with the park? It's not patrolled though, other than the shark planes.


Zytheran

Total length is about 2.4km. The non-nude section is about 1.6km. In comparison Aldinga down to Sellicks is about 6km. (IMHO Maslins is the best beach.) And yes to the dolphins, saw a fin once between me and shore at Maslins, happily it was a jumpy fin.


ifelife

I have seen jumpy fins but was also in the water one day when the shark plane spotted a bitey fin. Was quite funny because it started circling over one spot with the siren blasting. Right under that spot was two guys on blow up mattresses. Never seen anyone paddle that fast, they would have won the paddle leg of an Iron Man haha.


ktsimp

Haven't been there in years might have to go

ktsimp

Ill Slap them with seaweed


ifelife

We used to watch the leather backs, as we called them, walk from the car park to the nude section. You'd need binoculars to see them because it's such a long way from the main ramp


FigliMigli

Nice try Capitan underpants ;)


heyimhereok

Another not adelaide beach


ifelife

Maslins is considered metro so how is it not Adelaide?


heyimhereok

Not in any adelaidians world. It isn't metro.


TotallyAwry

Bollocks.


annonforkink

Alright ignore my username for a moment and take this as a seconded. Jaja. Added further is that awimming in the nude doesn’t mean PornHub is on location hey.


vleight

South of O'Sullivan's beach


RaptureRising

Moana and Aldinga Beach are my personal favourites.


TurbulentFlight643

Same! We’ve been a few times in the last week alone. And back again tomorrow


ATrain177

Anything south of O’Sullivans Beach boat ramp for me, I’m a souf-lyfer haha


ktsimp

Floating away on a boat mmmm sounds lovely.


heyimhereok

That's not adelaide


SinglejewHard4U

Are you ok mate? What's your definition of Adelaide?


drtekrox

City Beach then, since it's the only 'beach' in Adelaide...


Stunning-Nebula3103

Out of all the “close to the city” beaches in Adelaide, Semaphore is my favourite one too. I prefer to go a little more south of the jetty where the semaphore foreshore playground and Noonies cafe is. Always easier to park, easy beach access and less crowded and I find it is a great family friendly swimming spot. The water has been so calm and crystal clear there lately! Sooo many crabs though haha


ktsimp

Hot chips on the main strip, then a stroll to the beach and a leisurely stroll to largs catch a sunset while I'm at it .


kdavva75

That exact area is where my family nearly always went to the beach, very fond memories.


Strickens

Semaphore for me too, not only because it's probably the closest to Elizabeth lol. Plus memories from childhood of almost drowning on the waterslide, finding a blue ring octopus that my parents freaked out and quickly pulled me away from, and of course buckets of hot chips and no shortage of interesting stuff to scavenge in the sand.


Upstairs_Screen_2404

Seacliff or Henley/Grange


heyimhereok

Nice. An answer not South of actual Adelaide.


marcus569750

Southport no question.


Nasigoring

Moana, Silver Sands, no doubt.


Wolff71

Moana for mine. Would rather drive the esky on than carry the bloody thing.


lametheory

It was amazing tonight. Water is the warmest it's been this summer.


Sportsnut96

Heading there in a couple weeks so keen for a few froffies


Neyface

Very fond memories of my childhood swimming at Moana and then everyone having to move their cars further up the beach to avoid the incoming high tide, only for some people to get bogged in the loose sand. Also not-so-fond memories of 8-year old me getting dumped by the afternoon waves at Moana and having the boogie board smash into the sand and my diaphragm and wind me, or getting my toes nipped by a sand crab.


ktsimp

I have Never been road trip time ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|slightly_smiling)


heyimhereok

Not adelaide


PhilthyLurker

What’s your definition of “Adelaide”? Seems narrow…


TheSmegger

Lizbef.


damonreece

Brighton is wonderful. But you can't really go wrong unless you pick Glenelg for some reason.


ktsimp

I think glenelg is a bit of a mess nowadays


damonreece

The suburb is nice enough but I don't understand why people rave about the beach there when every other one Adelaide has is better...


XxINFAMOUSxX13

Moana and porties


oscar7g

1. Port Noarlunga & South Port 2. Port Willunga 3. Blow Hole Beach 4. Grange 5. Semaphore South 6. Seacliff 7. Moana Top 3 are god tier.


ifelife

I've seen Port Willunga named as one of the best beaches in the world. Years ago I was living in Aldinga and went to the Start of Greece for lunch with some "city slicker" friends who couldn't believe how blue the water was. The "city" beaches have nothing on the southern beaches


Conqu3st0206

Tennyson is my pick. Quiet and pristine with good proximity to the food and foreshore of semaphore.


[deleted]

They are all great and each have their own personality.


n02cheli

Silver sands


Octopus_Face76

Any beach without cars parked on it


Poppi-bishop-hope

Any beach that doesn’t require me to step in bloody annoying seaweed


Ultamira

Grange is my go to, I’ve had dolphins and seals sneakily swim up right next to me before. South Port Beach where the Onkaparinga meets the sea is one of my favourite places in SA.


PepperSweet8

Saw this recently haha


drtekrox

Maslins. inb4 jokes about the nudist beach, it's just straight up the nicest actual beach.


PanBlinkyInky

It actually is though 👌👌


shamanfromtheforest

The fact that everyone has a different answer only shows that Adelaide has a lot of nice beaches. We are so lucky to live in the best part of Australia. South of Adelaide is the place to be. Convenient access to express way, 5 min to beautiful beaches and 10 min to beautiful walks in the hills.


SavagePrism

Considering I do live in Semaphore, it’s got its perks. Though I’d like to revisit anywhere south of O’Sullivan’s as it’d been so long, maybe 10 years at least.


nlc900

Seacliff


flabberstalk33

Aldinga/Silver Sands Beach, even Moana is amazing Nothing beats the southern coastline


GranolaMartian

Being from the port, Semaphore is my go to. In Adelaide we're spoiled for choice with beaches. They're all good. Glenelg hogs the limelight.


Hidden_vixen

Forgive me for asking....but is there any nudist beaches around?


Rstevsparkleye

Maslin Beach.. South side


Hidden_vixen

What is it like? Feel free to dm me


TotallyAwry

Not the person you asked. It's been a couple of years, so things may have changed. Maslin Beach is my favourite beach. There are two parts, the dressed end and the nude end. The easier carpark is at the dressed end, but it's not *that* long of a walk to get to the nude end. The nude end has the better beach, although the dressed end is fine too. The nude end carpark fucking sucks to get back up to after your done, if you're not particularly fit. Lots of damn stairs. I've never found it particularly full of pervs, but I'm not their demographic anyway. I don't know what it's like if you're young and hot, although my daughter had no issues. That might be because she's always been there with her middle-aged fat mother though. There's always been a decent amount of people when I've gone, but it's never been ridiculous. The cliffs are beautiful, too. If nothing else, go for the view.


Hidden_vixen

Thankyou! That was an excellent answer❤


wiggypiggyziggyzaggy

I like to take tourists to Waitpinga


RopeOk1439

Hey- this is out the front of my house! I love semaphore, the strip here is just awesome fun during the summer. Having said that, I think I may migrate further towards the south.


_zaten_

I like Port Noarlunga, mostly for the reef there. I used to snorkel a lot before i moved up north near semaphore. Saw plenty of fish there and a few crabs as well. Semaphore is still a good beach though, even though it gets super busy near the main road.


Competitive_Bar_9058

I like Moana if I’m going down for the whole day. Drive on the beach and set up.


Spare_Atmosphere3960

Christies Beach, I may be biased because I live a 5min drive away but it's rarely too crowded


ktsimp

Lucky you 5 minutes to the beach ⛱️


MrNice101

The one that has great white sharks 5 metres of shore


ktsimp

Just heard the Jaws theme in my head


MrNice101

HAAHGGHN HAHH KILLER TIME FRENZY RRAAAGHHH


woodyever

This is like the best suburb in Adelaide… gonna be totally bias results


ktsimp

Don't live there unfortunately but it's my favourite so I'm ok with that.


woodyever

My point was the reply’s are gonna be bias…. U will get a list of multiple beaches in Adelaide


drtekrox

OP is biased themselves, anything not right next to the city isn't part of Adelaide according to them.


Ousessa

southport


Garlic_Bread_Man_NSW

MissJ64

benji7117

Dont waste time on seaweed infested Adelaide beaches head straight to aldinga/sellicks (silversands)


PepperSweet8

Semephore can be at times also largs . Grange and henley and onwards is usually clear


yourdad401

Blanche point def, super empty and calm


ktsimp

I have Never heard of that beach where is it too ?


yourdad401

It’s a point, maslin beach is the name. https://maps.app.goo.gl/VMZw7D1oD9Xiutk99?g_st=ic


Tough-Echo-2199

Black Point on yorkes


yelsha93

Thompsons beach


Forsaken-Comfort-587

For beach no water


wiggypiggyziggyzaggy

Christies Beach is a great little spot. Real pity it’s at Christie’s Beach though.


Oldmate81

Well any except Semaphore


heyimhereok

In Adelaide? Grange


TurbulentFlight643

I live in Seaford…. It’s still Adelaide


ktsimp

Yep Adelaide


heyimhereok

Yeah some don't get the question.


snowman4815

Theres so many, but its easy to put Brighton as the worst


drtekrox

>Hallet Cove exists Second Worst.


snowman4815

Fair


fitterniti

Henley gang where you at 🔥


SpecialK64

Anywhere but Glenelg, Semaphore or Henley. It’s meth head central


heyimhereok

Wtf fo people not get about... Best ADELAiDE beach? Fmifnits south of Seacliff its not Adelaide.


ifelife

You do know the metro area of Adelaide extends to at least Maslin Beach and has done for 30+ years?


heyimhereok

Nah not really and you know it.


ifelife

Yes really. And I do know it because when I first moved to McLaren Vale (parallel to Maslins) over 30 years ago it was still in the metro phone zone. You can keep thinking that the city only extends to the wanky popular areas but you will still be wrong.

bigaussiecheese

All of Adelaide or just near the CBD?


ktsimp

All of adelaide


bigaussiecheese

Probably Moana then, whole stretch is beautiful. Best you’ll get without driving to Aldinga.


mykro76

The best beach in Adelaide is one that due to a quirk of geography only the locals know about it. They'll never name it, and neither will I. Sorry 💗


[deleted]

Henley


discojeans

South Brighton


WaitingToBeTriggered

nbduckman

Not necessarily the best, but nice and quiet: The tiny strip of beach above the North Haven Marina, or as it's known by locals, the "secret beach".
