Myponga Beach

Fleurieu Peninsula

Around 13km west of Myrponga township, across a range of broad, cinematographic grassy hillsides and steep ravines, little Myponga Beach is a photogenic spot. Old beach shacks and contemporary holiday houses crowd down towards the sand in an almost Grecian jumble, while the beach itself is sheltered and good for a kid-friendly swim.
