Aldinga Beach

A vibrant yet cosy coastal town with an abundance of scenery & serenity

Aldinga Beach is adored for it’s versatile offerings and welcoming community. You can meet the locals at any one of the fantastic local businesses, meet the friendly fauna at the Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park, Washpools & Wetlands, or drive on to the beach and set up for a day of unwinding by the sea.

Drive on Beach

Aldinga Beach is very wide, with firm sand allowing vehicles with a beach pass to access certain sections. A launching area gives easy access to the water. Here divers can explore the Aldinga Aquatic Reserve with its spectacular ‘drop-off’ (an underwater cliff). Swimming and surfing are also popular here.

Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park is home to a diverse range of rare plants and features an impressive backdrop of sand dunes and remnant coastal vegetation.

Lacy coral lichen, nardoo, hairy sedge and several species of orchids are among the park’s rare species of flora. Remember to look out for the short-beaked echidnas, lizards, bats and the diverse range of birds that live in the park.

Sicily Mare Pizzeria

Aldinga Beach welcomed Sicily Mare Pizzeria this year, a traditional woodfired pizzeria, allowing you to experience an Italian getaway in our own backyard.

Situated on the esplanade, it’s all about the sea or “Mare” (the Italian translation), from its stunning coastal views to its interior, and even some special additions to the menu.

Patrolled Beach

Patrolled by the local Surf Life Saving Club from November through to March, Silver Sands is a great family beach.
