Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beach was very nice to walk along, clean as was the water, it is about 550 metres long, there are. toilet facilities and picnic spots
Captain Matthew Flinders came here in 1802 and found fresh water running from the rocks. He informed a French explorer who also came here and sank some wells for water as well
.one of his crew inscribed a message on a rock at the eastern end of the beach and that is still there today protected under a concrete dome.
The beach is known as Hog Bay due to the fact that some pigs were released here years ago

We walked along here soon after arriving on Kangaroo Island 🏝 In search of penguins though we didn’t see any. Peaceful and serene beach. Close to ferry, public toilets, cafes and car parking.

Unless you stay at Penneshaw, it’s likely that your only visit here would be one that happens while waiting for the ferry.
The beach is beautiful though and the water is very clear.

Before we headed to the Penneshaw Beach, we saw lots of bushes.

Once at the beach, I noticed that the sand looked white and it was easy to walk on.

There were 3 boats on the beach. No one was touching them.

There are nice views to enjoy. For example, on the other side of the ocean, there are beautiful mountains.

We walked near the ocean, enjoying the views.

This is really worthwhile to see!
