What Beaches Have Crystal Clear Water

Australians are getting a taste of the Mediterranean in their own backyard at a breathtaking beach less than one hour from Adelaide.

Tucked 45 kilometres south of the South Australian capital, Port Willunga boasts golden cliff faces, crystal clear waters and soft white sand reminiscent of Europe's picturesque south.

Caves carved into the cliffs by fishermen who once stored boats there are now Instagram hotspots used as backdrops by millennial and Gen Z travellers. 

Sections of the hull of the Star of Greece, a three-masted iron cargo ship which ran aground in 1888, remain on the ocean floor and have become one of the state's most popular diving spots.

At low tide parts of the wreck are visible from the shore.

Photos of the beach have sparked stunned responses on social media, with many calling it a 'European paradise' and their favourite destination in South Australia. 

'Hands down one of the best spots along the Fleurieu Peninsula,' one man wrote.
