Beach

Normanville is the largest coastal settlement on the southern Fleurieu Peninsula. The town is located in the centre of the 7.3 km long beach (207), with Lady Bay and 100 m high Yankalilla Hill forming the southern boundary and low Haycock Point the northern (Fig. 4.45). Three small creeks, the Yankalilla River, Bungala River and Carrickalinga Creek, reach the beach, with their entrances usually blocked by sand. The main beach access is at Normanville where there is a large car park and toilets, together with a small jetty and a caravan park. There is also good access at Lady Bay and at Haycock Point.The beach faces northwest into St Vincent Gulf and usually receives low westerly wind waves, and occasional southerly swell. Consequently waves average less than 0.5 m, the active beach is narrow and steep, and seagrass grows to within 50 m of the shoreline.

Swimming

Normanville and Carrickalinga beaches are relatively safe under normal conditions, with best access and facilities at Normanville and Carrickalinga, with rock reefs at the southern Lady Bay and around Carrickalinga Head.

Surfing

Usually none, with sloppy wind waves only during strong westerlies.

Fishing

The best shore fishing is from the Normanville Jetty and Haycock Point. Most fishers head out into the gulf in small boats, which can be launched from the beach at Lady Bay and Normanville.

General

Two attractive, long, usually quiet beaches, and one smaller one, with good access and facilities at Normanville.
