Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Port Elliot, South Australia your home away from home

Port Elliot is a delightful seaside village beside Horseshoe Bay which is as idyllic as it sounds. It was established as a port for the Murray River back in 1850 but after several unfortunate shipwrecks, trade was moved to neighbouring Victor Harbor in 1864.

Things to Do in Port Elliot, South Australia

The #1 attraction for those staying in Port Elliot holiday villas is the gorgeous sandy beach at Horseshoe Bay. This large beach has safe swimming for families while Boomer Beach on the west side of the town is perfect for surfing with huge waves at times. Wander into town and browse the cafés, gift shops and antique shops straggling along The Strand. If you want to be more energetic, there are some excellent walking trails along the cliffs with stunning coastal views. There is a local brochure of coastal walks available from the historical centre which shows nearly 60 sights and attractions such as the local blowhole, Aboriginal middens and 28 historic buildings of note. If you prefer to explore on two wheels, the Encounter Bikeway passes right through Port Elliot.

Amazing location

5 of 5
This is a fantastic property for families with kids. House is huge, and while old, it has new furniture throughout. There is plenty to do in the house itself, and it is in the perfect location to walk around victor harbour. Beach and playground are just at the end of the road. Woolworths and coles are just a few blocks away, we walked to them most times but used the back roads to get to them when we needed to drive. Communication with the owner is very easy, and she was a pleasure to talk with. A very enjoyable stay. Will definitely stay again. Thank you very much Sophie
