Sightseeing
Second Valley Beach is one of South Australia's most instagramed locations. It offers stunning views of the coastline and unique geological formations. This beach is popular for swimming, jetty fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving. Follow the open valley that narrows at the coast to a gap, through which flows the small Parananacooka Creek and the road to the beach. The small town and caravan park lies on the landward side of the gap. There is a small car park leading to a jetty with the two small beaches to either side. The eastern beach is sandy and popular for swimming. To the west is a north facing curving long boulder beach attached by rock reefs to a small headland. Conditions are usually calm at this part of the beach; however it is dominated by rocks and reef. Public toilet facilities are located in the car park. Second Valley Jetty Store is close by for takeaway and ice creams or book in historic Leonard's Mill for a gourmet lunch.

Nestled between long sandy beaches and towering cliffs, Rapid Bay is 105 kilometers south of Adelaide and reached by a steeply descending road from the main Normanville-Cape Jervis Road. Rapid Bay is well known for its very long jetty. While the original jetty built in 1940 is closed to the public, a new jetty (opened in early 2009) is now available for use. Take a stroll along the jetty and enjoy fishing or the beautiful views. At Rapid Bay, you'll also find an important South Australian landmark - a boulder on which Colonel Light carved his initials after he first stepped ashore. It's reported that he said "I have hardly seen a place I like better". Rapid Bay was named after the brig HMS Rapid in which Colonel Light and his staff came to South Australia, discovering Rapid Bay in 1830 enroute to Glenelg. Rapid Bay is usually calm and relatively safe, just watch the deep water right off both beaches. It's a paradise for divers and snorkelers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Sea dragon. It is an unpatrolled beach.
