Pennington Bay is just one of the many amazing photo opportunities to be had along the south coast of Kangaroo Island. Billed as a popular surf and fishing beach, swimming can be undertaken but at your own risk. This is due to rips and strong winds that cause huge waves that have been heard in the nearby town of American River some 9 kilometers away.
Pennington Bay is located at the end of Pennington Bay Road approximately 2 kilometers off Hog Bay Road. And while I can’t guarantee they will appear for you I spotted a pod of dolphins during my visit and my tour guide informed me he has spotted them there before as well.
