I can still remember one of the first conversations I had with Jackie. She asked me where the best beaches are in Adelaide. Second Valley was the first that came to mind. I said I’d take her to see it if she came back. A few months passed and there she was, back in Adelaide ready for me to show her some my favourite spots. We decided to hire a van from Adelaide, throw a blow up mattress in the back of it and sleep right by the sea, along the Fleurieu Coast.
Our last evening of that whirlwind weekend was spent in Second Valley. We got there just as the sun was beginning to set. We quickly got up the hill just in time. Just as expected, it was perfection – warm balmy night with a slight breeze. We could’ve slept up there. In fact I just kept envisioning us building a tiny house on that hill and calling it our home… Goals!
If you read our Top 5 beaches of Adelaide post you might have noticed that Second Valley was one of them, and for good reason. This beach isn’t just a regular degular beach… its surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. No houses, paved roads or humans in sight. Just you and the rolling hills turning into straight up ocean.
The small beach is a little busier now as it’s becoming more and more popular to Adelaidians but if you know exactly how to get up to the good parts, I promise you’ll feel far enough away from the humans. If your feeling extra adventurous, there are kayaks to hire and some local cliff jumping spots around the bend.
