1 Seacliff Beach
Seacliff 5049, SA

Seacliff Beach (230A) begins amongst the broad rock flats of Mario Rocks. Several hundred metres north of the rocks, the rock flats thin as the sandy beach increases in extent (Fig. 4.59). By Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club and the adjoining Seacliff Sailing Club the beach has almost replaced the rocks and a sandy beach continues to Glenelg (Fig. 4.60). In the south the beach is backed by a park below the old seacliff , then a caravan park and the two club houses, with a car park and boat ramp north of the sailing club. A road and housing then back the beach all the way to Brighton. The beach itself consists of a high tide sand beach and fronting rock flats south of the surf club, with a shallow sand bar replacing the rocks to the north. Waves are low in the south, increasing to about 0.5Â m past the clubs. The bar is usually continuous and rips present only during bigger seas.

The Seacliff to Glenelg beaches offers relatively safe swimming owing to the usually low waves and continuous shallow bar. However rips occasionally cross the bar scouring deeper channels. Stay on the inner bar and clear of any deeper troughs. Care must also be taken near the rocks at Seacliff, around the two jetties, at the Patawalonga breakwater where there can be strong currents, and at occasional breaks in the bar where there are deeper holes. The safest swimming is at the four areas patrolled by the Seacliff, Brighton, Somerton and Glenelg Surf Life Saving Clubs....
