Summer is an exciting time to be in Robe, South Australia.
With sandy beaches and a quaint town centre, there are so many things to do and places to see. So if you’re planning an exciting January holiday in Robe, here are the top “must do’s” in the area.
Go on a shopping spree
If you’re staying close to the Robe town centre, then we highly recommend shopping at the many retail stores available.
Robe has plenty of local retailers that sell items distinct to the town itself. For example, you could shop for the perfect Robe holiday beachwear and accessories at Holiday. The retailer also has regular warehouse sales in January, and it’s conveniently located right next to our favourite coffee spot. This brings us to the next best thing to do….
Have coffee at Mahalia Coffee
Life is too short for bad coffee, even on holiday. Luckily, Robe has an award-winning cafe just a short drive or walk from the town centre.
Mahalia Coffee is one of the top-rated coffee spots in Robe, and it’s the ideal place to have that first cuppa in the morning. Plus, their outdoor seating area opens up into a local playground – perfect if you’re on a family-friendly holiday.
Take a drive on the beach
There’s nothing better than driving on the beach in Robe. If you’re staying in accommodation near Long Beach, then we’d recommend taking a drive on the beach itself. Long Beach is one of the few beaches on which you can drive any type of car as the sand is firm enough. However, if you’re looking for a more adventurous 4WD, be sure to check out driving along the sand dunes of Little Dip Conservation Park.
Long Beach is also home to some of the best surf in South Australia, and it’s suitable for both beginner and experienced surfers. So if you love the waves, we highly recommend surfing in Long Beach and booking accommodation that’s close to it. That way, you’ll be minutes away from your next surf!
Get ice cream at Robe Ice-Cream & Lolly Shop
There’s nothing better than ice cream on a hot day, so why not take a trip to The Ice-Cream Shop? Rated as the #1 dessert place on TripAdvisor in Robe, this ice-cream parlour has many delicious ice-cream flavours well-loved by locals. Be sure to ask the friendly staff for tasters! PLUS they do hot cinnamon donuts – a childhood favourite!
There’s nothing short of things to do in Robe, and it’s undoubtedly the best place to be in the summer time. So if you’re looking for accommodation in Robe, visit Robe Lifestyle Properties for your ideal Robe beachfront, rural, town centre, and Cape Jaffa accommodations.
