Second Valley Beach

Natural Attractions

Second Valley Beach is one of South Australia’s most instagramed locations. It offers stunning views of the coastline and unique geological formations. This beach is popular for swimming, jetty fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving.

Follow the open valley that narrows at the coast to a gap, through which flows the small Parananacooka Creek and the road to the beach. The small town and caravan park lies on the landward side of the gap. There is a small car park leading to a jetty with the two small beaches to either side.

The eastern beach is sandy and popular for swimming. To the west is a north facing curving long boulder beach attached by rock reefs to a small headland. Conditions are usually calm at this part of the beach; however it is dominated by rocks and reef.

Public toilet facilities are located in the car park. Second Valley Jetty Store is close by for takeaway and ice creams or book in historic Leonards Mill for a gourmet lunch.
