Nestled on the beach in the heart of the famous Southern Vales wine region, the area offers the best of the coast and country and yet is an easy 45 minute drive from the heart of Adelaide.

This seaside haven is framed by the rolling Mt Lofty Ranges, offering sweeping vistas that are carpeted by verdant vineyards with splashes of olive groves.

With its protective reef shelf to the south and a broad bay on Gulf St Vincent, the area was once all about sailing ships but is now all sea change and holiday houses high on the limestone cliffs.

A variety of beach experiences are on your doorstep from the sheltered cove and surfing breaks of Port Willunga, the family friendly drive-on stretch of golden sand from Aldinga Beach to Sellicks, the fishing and divers delight of the reef, or the nudist beach at nearby Maslins.

While the green and blue gulf waters below the cliffs mean lazy days on the beach for most, the area is also a focus for diving with a unique Aquatic Reserve established in the waters off the beach to protect a rare reef formation.

This quaint village of Port Willunga is also a stones throw from the multitude of award winning wineries and renowned restaurants (such as Star of Greece, Saltbush, The Victory Hotel, The Salopian Inn and The Barn), coffee shops, galleries and antique shops that permeate the nearby Southern Vales.

As South Australia's best kept secret, the area offers the best of summer family holidays, winter getaways with wine tasting beside crackling fires, golfing, or even hang-gliding or flying for the more adventurous.

Once you have visited the fabulous Fleureu Peninsula you'll just keep coming back!
