East of Myponga the high cliffs and steep bluffs continue for 5 km to Sellicks Beach. Running along the base of the cliffs is an irregular 3 km long boulder beach (213), fronted for the most part by an intertidal rock platform, and interrupted in places by several steep creeks mouths and protruding bluffs and rocks. This beach can only be accessed at low tide and on foot. It is not suitable for swimming.
