About Middleton

surf and sun shop in Middleton

Middleton is my home town - I live here and I love it.  I grew up surfing at Middleton beach, I still surf here and plan on being here for many years to come.

Middleton is on the Fleurieu Peninsula - it is around 1.5 hours South of Adelaide and a small, picturesque town that is mostly made up of holiday homes.  My philosophy, why wouldn't I want to live where everyone likes to holiday!

  • Encounter Bikeway - Middleton has a great bike track leading to either Port Elliot, Victor Harbor or Goolwa.  Middleton is right in the middle and it is around 14km either way.  The bike track follows the coast and is on a mixture of roads and purpose built trail.  It is easy for all abilities and very safe.  Biking is a great way to spend your day.
  • Surfing - Well no secrets here - this is why our business is here, this is why I live here.  Middleton boasts waves every day of the year and although it is not described as the best surf in the world - it is consistent, it is great for learning and it is not far from Adelaide making it a popular place for surfers.
