Western River Cove

"Western River Cove - a Charming Beach on Kangaroo Island Australia!"

You really are spoiled for choice when it comes to the beaches on Kangaroo Island. It's no wonder this island features prominently on my Australian Beaches page.

This cove is a small and very picturesque arc of sand at the river mouth and is a lovely area to explore.

How to Get To The Beach

W River Cove is on the north coast of Kangaroo Island Australia. This coast is particularly rugged but this beach is actually fairly calm and sheltered by the headlands.

There is a carpark here which takes you across a footbridge over the river, past the sand dunes and then on to the beach

Why Visit This Beach?

You'll feel like you've discovered a hidden bay as you follow the footbridge to this little piece of paradise.

This is a great beach to relax, swim and and snorkel in.

If fishing is your thing then you can get organised tours from Western River and they'll take you for some serious deep sea fishing. Or just stick to the beach and enjoy exploring the rocks or sea for fish.
