On the south side of Kingscote jetty is a 300 m long, narrow, sand and gravel high tide beach (KI-8), fronted by shallow, 50 to 100 m wide sand flats, then seagrass meadows. A terraced park backs the centre of the beach, then a road that runs south to Rolls Point. The beach terminates at the Kingscote pool, which consists of a 50 m long sand beach (KI-9) enclosed in a pool structure. The pool is backed by a sloping grassy reserve and has dressing sheds and toilet facilities.

Swimming

The only spot suitable for swimming is the Kingscote pool, as all the beaches are fronted by shallow sand flats.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

The jetty is the most popular location, the beaches generally being too shallow.

General

These seven beaches border the island’s major settlement. While they are all very accessible and some highly visible, they are little used for recreation, other than fishing and sailing at the yacht club beach.
