Kuti Shack Goolwa Beach

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a relaxed restaurant specialising in dishes containing Goolwa cockles, than behind the sand dunes overlooking the beach where they can be harvested. The Kuti shack is at the end of Beach Road at Goolwa Beach and sits between the new Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club and the popular surf beach. If you’re planning a holiday to the Fleurieu Peninsula region of South Australia, you will want to add the Kuti Shack to your list of places to try if you want the best views and seafood experiences on the coast.
