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.

A lovely place to stop and have some lunch in Winter. The nearby cafe is closed this time of the year, but the beach and the shelter are still a lovely place.

Have to scramble through the rocks from the car park to reach the beach. Rewarded by fine sandy beach with two dolphins swimming just offshore.
Expected it to be breezy, but was actually very calm with the onshore wind.

You turn up at a carpark and you see a rocky beach. Oh nice you think but then you see that people are weaving through the rocks. You follow and at the end of the rock caves you enter a pristine beach. There is a Little Rock pool that is perfect for young children.
Laze on the sand and relax the day away.
There is food at the small deli and toilets at the camping ground.
A perfect day out.

Interesting entry as you walk through and under rocks to enter in. at the time we were there you could either walk through the water to follow the pathway or go up the hill a little and follow the trail. At the end we took our footwear off to enter the secluded beach through the water. The rockpool seemed a nice place to swim but there a signs the "Beware of the Rip" outside the rock poll area.

If you don't visit Stokes Bay beach you are doing Kangaroo Island the wrong way. The short walk to the beach has to be experienced to be believed and then the beach with its perfectly rolling waves and rock pool. Divine.

A stunning beach. One of the prettiest beaches I've seen. Could easily spend all day here. Beautiful rock pools, dolphins and white sand. Can't wait to return again when the weather is better.

When we arrived at Stokes Bay and saw the beach strewn with rocks and large pebbles we wondered what all the fuss was about? Then you see a small sign of in the distance to "BEACH". You wind your way between boulders and through small caves until you emerge onto one of the most amazing beach areas on the island. Lovely tidal rock pools to wade in as well as a very expansive beach area. WARNING there is a strong rip on this beach and it is not patrolled.
