Beaches and Waterways

Long sandy beaches, rugged cliff scapes and sheltered coves introduce a range of year round activities on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Activities include fishing, surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing, swimming and winter whale watching.

The Fleurieu Peninsula has a long and varied coastline that includes secluded beaches rarely visited by humans, as well as fiercely weathered limestone cliffs and headlands that take the full force of the Southern Ocean.


It has surf beaches that attract surfers from around Australia, fishing beaches, sailing beaches – and reefs and wrecks for scuba divers to explore.

Quaint little fishing shacks can be found tucked behind beaches and sand hills, tiny ports have fishing jetties and country pubs, while sheltered bays and coves provide moorings for fishing and sailing boats.

There's no shortage of places in which to stay overnight, with cottages and apartments for rent, and caravan parks and conservation park campsites with million dollar ocean views.
