North Coast

Incorporating: Emu Bay, Smith Bay, Cape Cassini, Stokes Bay, Snelling Beach, Middle River & Western River Cove.

Stunning is one word to describe the coastline of the North Coast of Kangaroo Island where feelings of space and freedom overtake the senses, and rolling hills and views for miles inspire you to take time out to relax.  Stokes Bay Beach is one of Kangaroo Islands best beaches.  The beach is accessed through a rock tunnel formation.  Once you stroll onto this beach you will immediately find a natural rock pool which is great for children to swim safely. For those who like to surf, body surf or explore sheltered coastal inlets while perhaps flicking a fishing line then Stokes Bay Beach is your place. At the beach you may even see penguins, dolphin pods and the odd seal or two pass by.

The North Coast also has lots of tucked idyllic beach jewels like Western River Cove, King George Beach and Snelling Beach. Popular with snorkelers and rock fishers is Snelling Beach. Snelling Beach is a perfect place for a swim, a snorkel, a short walk or to relax for a few hours. 

North Coast and its surrounds are far enough from everything to really escape with plenty of beautiful seaside accommodation and camp sites. It is close enough to comfortably explore Flinders Chase National Park during the day or head back in to Kingscote and surrounding areas.

Emu Bay located 18 km from Kingscote is very picturesque and a very popular holiday spot. Emu bay boasts 4 km of long white sandy beach with vehicle access as well as safe, clear water for swimming and water activities.
