While beaches in South Australia are generally overlooked in favor of the famed Bondi beach in New South Wales and Whitehaven Beach in Queensland, there is no reason to turn up your nose to the glass-water, and white sand beaches of South Australia and enjoy SUP board surfing.
SUP Boards South Australia
From secluded cliff-edged and rugged beaches with storm-tossed waves to beaches with relaxing water and surf-friendly waves that are best for families, there are some of the top beaches South Australia has to offer.
Gunyah Beach and its popular sand dunes are placed close to the Coffin Bay, a little next to aptly named Coffin Bay National park.
From there, you can drive a sealed road to the park and straight onto Gunyah beach.
It is secluded in an amazing, panoramic way, as soon as you emerge from the greenery, the sweeping views will make you feel like the final person on earth.
Merdayerrah Sandpatch is the westernmost South Australia beach, lying at the base of the remote Bunda cliffs.
The beach is 8.5 kilometers long and is lined with white calcareous dunes that are stretched up to get the crest of the popular Nullabor plain.
There is a walking track down to the shore, and while there are lots of perfect locations to swim, experienced surfers will find reef breaks that are unmatched to that Australia east coast.
Western River Cove
North of Kangaroo Island rugged north coast, western river cove is sheltered by 2 headlands, placed a mere two-hundred meters apart, making a secluded, tranquil cove that is an effort to get to but actually values it.
Fishing boats sometimes anchor here for the schools of fish that pass via, and the relaxing waters are best for snorkeling, swimming, and diving.
