Port Vincent is one of Yorke Peninsula’s most versatile and popular holiday destinations, and is located on the eastern coastline.
The yachties sail over Gulf St Vincent from Adelaide and berth at the wharf or marina, and the town is perfect for young families.
The beach at Port Vincent is sandy and has a floating pontoon for young kids to swim from; older kids prefer to swim off the wharf, so this location suits all ages.
The sandy and shallow ‘back beach’ is popular for crab raking. The best time for crabbing is in months with an ‘r’ in them, due to the warmth of the water.
With two boat ramps to choose from – a 2 lane all tide boatramp, and a sailboat launch located near the Port Vincent Sailing Club – and 90-berth Port Vincent Marina, all type of boats and watercraft are catered for.
Join the local flotilla on a Sunday during summer – you would be most welcome!
Port Vincent has several cliff top lookouts and scenic walking trails around the town, which allow you to choose your own postcard views.
With a chemist, hotel, takeaways, coffee shop, service stations, butcher, newsagency and specialty shops, Port Vincent provides you with everything you need for your stay.
Port Vincent is located approximately 2 ½ hours drive from Adelaide.
