In addition, there are several boat tour operators who can take you out further so you can enjoy deep sea fishing in one of the most stunning locations in the world.

If fishing is not your thing, then why not go swimming. The jetty is the perfect location and extremely safe for all ages. As well as this, there are many parks and play areas for children to run wild and enjoy themselves up and down the promenade.

Where you stay in Moonta Bay will greatly enhance your experience. There is a wide range of holiday rentals which overlook the jetty and up and down the shoreline. Waking up in your very own private holiday villa or serviced apartments with views of the ocean is one of the best experiences ever to be enjoyed.

It is in need of a bit of TLC, the house needs re-painting inside and some quite worn areas. The floor in the toilet was filthy as I discovered when I wiped it with disinfectant wipes- quite off putting! The beach access described has been clearly blocked off for some time. We specifically booked this property so that we were near the beach and paid the extra money to be so. However, there is no near access, in fact probably a good 20-30 minute walk due to the walkway along the beach being blocked off. It was extremely windy whilst we were there and we were kept awake most of the night by the rattling flue from the wood heater and the other areas rattling - windows, balcony, etc.. it is a nice house, but the issues with the wood heater flue, the excessive noise from it, the cleanliness and the problem with the beach access spoilt the stay for us. So whilst I have given it 4 stars, I wouldn’t personally stay there again.
