1 Aldinga Beach
Aldinga 5173, SA
Aldinga Beach (216) and adjoining Snapper Point is a 1.5km narrow, crenulate high tide sand beach fronted by 300 to 400m wide intertidal rock flats, that extend further offshore as reefs. The whole point and reef area is an aquatic reserve. Aldinga township backs the bluffs, with a bluff top road paralleling the back of the beach and providing both views and access to the beach and fronting platforms.
The main beach is a moderately safe beach, particularly on the attached inner bar. Be careful of the deep trough between the inner and outer bar. When waves exceed 1m rips intensify in this trough. Also watch for cars when crossing the beach. Some sections of Aldinga Beach are unsuitable for swimming owing to the rocky reef flats.
