We love places that allow you onto a beach easily, and were blown away by the setup that Kingston SE has. Not only do they have access to some truly magic beaches, but you can drive a 4WD onto them in many places, which means lots of people get to relax by the beach in a nice, comfortable way.
We spent a night at the Granites, and then moved into the Kingston RV Park for two more nights.
Unlike Aldinga Beach access, this is free and despite being busy in peak periods its not hard to find a place to pull up.
Kingston SE Beach driving
You can get onto the beach at Kingston SE in a number of places:
We actually camped here in the bitumen car park, and the beach is spectacular. I didn’t really rate the actual campground, but given its proximity to the beach and how good it is, you can’t go wrong. The Granite rocks are pretty stunning and are right near the beach access.
From Kingston SE itself, there’s a myriad of places you can drive onto the beach, and we saw a huge number of people out enjoying themselves. They recommend having a 4WD, but we did see a couple of AWD vehicles on the beach in select places.
Further down from Kingston lies Pinks Beach, which you’ll actually get to via the beach if you keep heading south. This is a similar beach, but still worth a look.
If you want to drive even further on the beach, you can continue from Pinks Beach all the way down to Cape Jaffe. We took the bitumen, and hopped onto a couple of beaches at Cape Jaffe. You can also head to the lighthouse accommodation ruins, and get to the point which we had absolutely perfect weather for.
Expect a fair bit of weed here, and the beach was really soft when we visited, but its a great place.
Beyond this, you can head to Robe, Beachport, Southend and Canunda National Park and experience a whole heap of 4WDing, and we did a heap of it that was pretty incredible.
