Starting from our home beach Glenelg, we planned a day of wine tasting and fine dining in McLaren Vale (we did this), but also ended up visiting four beaches in one day.

Port Willunga beach, just South of Adelaide, is one of the most photographed beaches in South Australia, mainly due to the eerie remains of its storm-destroyed jetty and also the shipwreck of the Star of Greece. The eponymous restaurant is hugely popular with day trippers and today hosted a wedding party so, for us, refreshments were off. On to the third beach.

Maslin is notorious as a nudist beach. We headed towards the northern end but the only nakedness we encountered was Sweetpea, a three-and-a-half legged dog who befriended us. Leaving our shoes in a communal pile, we went for a walk in the sand and water. The beach itself is stunning, a long pure sandy horseshoe bounded by red and chalk cliffs which we had pretty much to ourselves.

The sun was getting low, so we decided to head for home to catch the sunset more locally at Seacliff, the day’s final beach. The sky put on a great finale.
