I love slow travel, slow food and discovering new adventures and delicious regional food in new locations. I'm on an indulgent quest and I'd love you to follow at www.walkeatshare.wordpress.com

Have lunch with the Pelicans at Sugars Beach
The mouth of the River Murray can be seen from Hindmarsh Island. It appears as an opening in the sand dunes which stretch along the coastline for about 145 kilometres, or 90 miles. This explains why you may have heard references to 'The Ninety Mile Beach'. Two peninsulas meet at the point of the Murray Mouth; Sir Richard Peninsula on the west side and Younghusband Peninsula to the east.
If you go to see the Murray Mouth, you'll find Sugars Beach nearby. It's a popular spot for kayakers, sailors and fishers.
The cafe opened at the very end of 2015 and has proved extremely popular. Heather and Peter serve good coffee and Golden North Ice Creams as well as hamburgers fish and seafood. On the menu you'll find salt and pepper squid for $10, panko-crumbed prawns, also for $10 or a combination of squid, prawns and fish for $15. There's chunky chips, of course, and various battered and grilled fish options. The Mulloway, sourced fresh from nearby Hoads Fishery, is a particular favourite.
