Vivonne Bay, Kingscote
(4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Of the more than 10,000 beaches Sydney University's marine studies center evaluated, it deemed Vivonne Bay one of the best in Australia. The sheltered beach offers long stretches of sand for beachcoming and consistent waves for surfing. Watch fishermen unload their catch at the long jetty. For safe swimming, enter the water near the jetty and boat ramp or the sandy-bottomed Harriet River that enters the bay nearby. Head to the other side of the river to take photos of waves crashing into cliffs. There are barbecue and picnic areas, toilets, and a camping area, making it a well-equipped spot for relaxing. Vivonne Bay is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Kingscote Edition.

  • You can save the Jolt ride to this Bay. There are nicer coves on this wonderful island. It has no catering facilities and beautiful sea views may be.

  • Great little beach in south coast, easy to see why one of the best in Oz. Can grab some winds on a windy bay though, so make sure you pack a sweater.
