Carrickalinga is one of the best beaches in Australia and only 1 hour's drive from Adelaide. Think sugary white sand, super clear aqua water, rock pools, and resident dolphins - and because it flies under the radar for many South Australians, you're often sharing it with only a handful of people along the entire stretch of beach. The immediate area has been kept simple and free of shops or cafes, but is well serviced by the nearby town of Normanville (1km up the road) which has everything you could want including a great supermarket, pub, cafes and shops, tennis courts and boat launch.
From Carrickalinga you are perfectly situated to make day trips to a variety of destinations along the Fleurieu Pensinsula including spectacular McLaren Vale for lunch and wine tasting (35 min drive); the famous Victory Hotel for amazing lunches (20min); historic Willunga town (30min); Normanville and Yankalilla townships (5 min) for amenities, pubs, shopping; Second Valley (20min) and Victor Harbour (35min).
