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.
Rarely do I find bluish-color and crystal clear sea shore. Great for swimming and surfing anytime of the season.
Pennington Bay looks magnificent. During my time in Australia I lived outside Brisbane and mos of the people there who were into surfing spoke highly and spoke often of Pennington Bay. The swell there is supossed to be nice as it whips around the bay. Pictures look amazing by the way.
Andrew thats really cool to know. While surfing isn’t my thing I would have to image it would be a great beach for it.
I wonder if the Kangaroo Island used to be a place for kangaroos. Maybe, history can attest to that. I like the beach so much!
Diego, Kangaroo Island was actually named because of the Kangaroos found there when Mathew Flinders discovered it way back in 1802.
