One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen is located in Port Willunga (McLaren Vale wine region). Although there are no palms like in Queensland, the view over the sea and the white sand is spectacular. Port Willunga beach was even proclaimed one of the world's top holiday spots. It's never over-crowded, not even in the high season and school holidays. It's the perfect swimming and leisure location for the entire family.
Beside the leisure and relaxing facilities, this beach offers perfect dining options. One recommended top restaurant is called Star of Greece. It has excellent food and stunning views. If you prefer self-service with moderate prices, there is also a kiosk available next door. And of course, there are plenty of picnic areas around.
This review is out of date. While the Star of Greece still has stunning views, the quality of the food is poor at best and the serving sizes are minuscule. Not worth the $$$ price tag and the service isn't anything to write home about. Best advice is to go to the walk up kiosk that shares the same kitchen and enjoy fish and chips for a tenth of the price and the same stunning views.
