About Black Point

Read more about Black Point

Some would say Black Point is one of the most prized beachfront holiday locations in SA. About 150 "shacks" line the white crescent shaped shores where swimming, fishing, crabbing and waterskiing are daily aqua activities.

With many of the "shacks" at Black Point now more elaborate than the average home, Country Getaways has family friendly accommodation options to suit everyone's needs and budgets.

You can launch your boat at the boat ramp, or could go raking for crabs at low tide. Whichever you choose, you are bound to get a feed.

These holiday homes are serviced by nearby Pine Point where the small shop has newspapers, basic supplies, fuel and a liquor store.

For all your other shopping requirements, head to the town of Ardrossan where the Foodland has a variety groceries and departments.

Black Point is approximately a 2 hour drive from Adelaide.
