There arent many beaches that you can drive on in Australia. Aldinga is lovely in Summer but gets really busy. I love it in winter when its really quiet.

Beautiful crystal clear waters with a nice gentle wave most time-make sure you're there before 9am as someone starts charging to take your cars onto the sand.. Before 9am though it's full of horses. A great place to spend all day with the kids.

After dinner we walked here. It was pretty chilly for the time of year. You go down with stairs so you don't interupt the breathing birds. Seen no trash on the beach

Peaceful beach away from the city. You can sit for hours if you want to unwind. Has a Indian Restaurant and a coffee shop.

Cars are permitted on this beach which is handy for carting things however need to watch children crossing to the water. Safe for swimming as it is very flat and usually not much surf.
