Port Willunga Beach

Natural Attractions

Port Willunga Beach is one the region’s most photographed beaches featuring the remains of the Port Willunga Jetty. Located approximately 35kms south of Adelaide, the beach is famous for its golden cliff faces, crystal clear waters and soft white sands – the type that squeaks between your toes. It is an ideal spot for those long beach walks on the wet sand, with only the sound of waves lapping at your feet.

Nestled on the edge of the cliff top is the Star of Greece restaurant, offering stunning views along the coast and named after a nearby shipwreck. Sections of the hull of the Star of Greece, which sank in 1888, remain on the sea floor and makes for a popular diving spot. At low tide parts of the wreck may still be visible from the shore.

Port Willunga Beach also forms part of Route 31 Coastal Drive, which stretches from O’Sullivan Beach to Sellicks Beach along 31kms of pristine coastline (hence its name Route 31). To experience the drive, and discover the great places to stop, explore and wander grab a map by dropping into the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast Visitor Centre or download it from the website.
