Your guide to Island Beach

All About Island Beach

Tucked away on the northern shores of Kangaroo Island, and nestled between Brown Beach and Sapphiretown, lies Island Beach — a secluded oasis and a haven for some of the island’s abundant wildlife, including kangaroos, koalas, sea lions, and diverse birdlife. Its pristine, azure waters and vast stretches of pearly white sand are bound by dense coastal bushland and gentle waves. Spanning nearly 3.5 miles, Island Beach offers a serene coastal getaway, where you can dip into the clear, shallow waters for a relaxing swim, take a stroll along the expansive shoreline, or rent a kayak for a peaceful paddle around Eastern Cove.

Island Beach is a great starting point for exploring the rest of Kangaroo Island. You can make the short drive to the American River and sample wines at local wineries, grab a bite to eat at a restaurant on the wharf, or stop off in the nearby town of Penneshaw for some penguin spotting.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Island Beach?

One of the best times to enjoy Island Beach is during the summer months (December through February), when the warm temperatures make for ideal swimming, hiking, boating, and fishing conditions. In winter (June through August), colonies of fur seals and sea lions sunbathe on the rocks for warmth, and whales can be spotted breaching offshore at different spots around the island. Temperatures during this time can be chilly, with a high chance of rain and strong winds. If you plan to visit during this time, be sure to pack some extra layers. Spring (September through November) boasts pleasant temperatures, with blooming wildflowers and native plants adorning the lush surrounding landscape. Warm daytime temperatures during the fall provide a comfortable climate for outdoor activities. Major local events include a marathon in Kangaroo Island each May and a music festival which takes place in Penneshaw in November.


What are the top things to do in Island Beach?

Penneshaw

Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island’s second-largest town, is approximately a 15-minute drive from Island Beach. Situated on the shores of Hog Bay, Penneshaw provides abundant opportunities to admire local wildlife and is known for its colony of wild penguins, which you can spot during the evenings on guided tours. You’ll also find plenty of spots here to dine and sample renowned local wines.

Remarkable rocks

On the southern coast of Kangaroo Island, around a two-hour drive from Island Beach, you’ll find one of the island’s stunning geological phenomena. Perched atop the cliff overlooking the sea lies a spectacular display of granite boulders with a unique coastal formation that has been shaped over millions of years by the wind, rain, and waves. The boardwalk to the site provides stunning views of the surrounding bays, bushland, and the historic Cape du Couedic Lighthouse.

Prospect Hill

You can make your way to Prospect Hill in just nine minutes by car. The scenic trail begins at the car park just off Hog Road and there are 500 steps to reach the peak, which is also the highest point on Kangaroo Island. Your efforts will be rewarded with spectacular, panoramic views of the island.
