Knights Beach, Port Elliot


81 kilometres from Adelaide

Port Elliot is a historic coastal town that has evolved into the perfect day trip or beach holiday location. The township boasts plenty of food, wine, and boutique shopping experiences – alongside a stretch of antique stores and booksellers.

Just over an hour south of Adelaide, Port Elliot and neighbouring Victor Harbor and Middleton are the city’s go-to weekend getaway spots.

The town’s most popular beach – Horseshoe Bay – offers a safer swimming haven amongst rough southern swell, and the flagged portion of the beach is monitored by surf lifeguards over summer.

Visitors can take in the magnificent scenery by following the coastal walk around the headlands and protected bays. Be sure to keep an eye out in the cooler months for the pods of whales that flock to these waters from May – September!

There’s accommodation in Port Elliot to suit all needs - ranging from bed and breakfasts, backpacker hostels, hotels, holiday homes, and apartments, to a large caravan park with cabins and camping grounds.

While there’s plenty to do in the heart of Port Elliot, don’t overlook the businesses just outside of town! Along Waterport Road you’ll find hidden gems like De Groot Coffee Co and Number 58 Cellar Door & Gallery.
