Christies Beach can be found after a drive to the Southern Adelaide Coast, close to Noarlunga Centre. It is a popular spot when Summertime hits, and was even used by the indigenous Kaurna people as a place to flock to and set up homes when the weather got warmer.



During high tide areas of the beach seem non-existent, and the long boardwalk just stretches into water. During low tide the long sandy beach is revealed, becoming a popular place to sit in the sun, build sandcastles, or hunt for shells. The Christies Beach Surf Life Saving Club is nearby, closer to the northern end of the beach to make sure all the swimmers at Christies are safe.

On the southern end of the beach you will find the renovated beach front. Here you can find toilet blocks and showers, as well as some nice undercover tables and chairs to enjoy some fish and chips. This area is close to Beach Road, so you can always head up this strip after you're done at the beach to check out some of the shops and perhaps grab some food. Also on the beach front is Rotary Park which features a fun playground for the kids.

There is also a surfing break at Christies Beach, you can check out other mid coast surf breaks on the Surf South Oz website. There is a small surf shop near the northern end of the beach by the Christies Beach Tourist Park. Other nearby businesses include restaurants and a fish and chips shop on the northern end of the beach.



Christies Beach is a lovely beach to head to when the mercury starts rising. While beach road doesn't have the scale of Jetty Road at Glenelg it is still a bustling seaside suburb with some interesting places to offer. To get to Christies you can take the Southern Expressway and take the Beach Road exit.
