Port Vincent Beach ScenePort Vincent looks out over the protected waters of Gulf St Vincent.  Initially called Surveyor's Point, the town was laid out by an Adelaide solicitor in 1877.  Like most of the towns on Yorke Peninsula, Port Vincent is an old port, and was the main entry point for people and goods to and from the Yorke Peninsula until a good road was built from Port Wakefield in around 1949.

Port Vincent is an ideal location for fishing, boating and sailing. The attractive and peaceful bay provides swimming for families and the kids will love the pontoon.  Dolphins often frequent the area and the beachfront is a great place to relax with a book or enjoy some fish and chips.

The attractive 90 berth marina at the northern end of the bay provides safe harbour for yachties and boaties, as well as an all-tides boat ramp. It's also a great place for a spot of fishing.Port Vincent marina - Brooke Bellchambers

Stroll in the shallows to rake for blue swimmer crabs, dive for scallops just off-shore, or throw out a line for mullet, salmon, flathead, bream, garfish, whiting or squid. There are also some spectacular walking trails along the cliff tops north and south of the town, with lookouts providing stunning views across the marina and Gulf St Vincent.

Port Vincent visitor information outlet can provide information on the local area, as well as maps and brochures. It is located in Marine Parade.
