Centrally located between Goolwa and Port Elliot, Middleton provides kilometres of accessible, scenic coastline and excellent surfing beaches.

Middleton is also known for its bakery, bed and breakfasts, beaches, swimming and holiday opportunities. The Southern Right Whale can often be seen off the low cliffs during June to September, with the most common location being off Middleton Point. For about 90 per cent of the time, the whales are spotted at Basham's Beach between Middleton and Port Elliot.

The beaches are great for kite flying. You can also take surfing lessons here, with local surf schools.

Take your bike and ride the Encounter Bikeway between Goolwa and Victor Harbor or laze away the days by staying in Bed and Breakfast accommodation, a holiday home or the local caravan park.
