Your guide to Coffin Bay
All About Coffin Bay
At the southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia is Coffin Bay, around seven hours from the Capital of Adelaide and just 35 minutes from the large fishing town of Port Lincoln. Surrounded by the sea and national parks, Coffin Bay boasts pristine remote beaches, white sand dunes, and secluded coves, as well as one of Australia’s most stunning estuaries.
The crystal-clear waters of the bay are perfect for sailing, swimming, water-skiing, and skin diving, and you can explore one of the many walking trails in the Coffin Bay National Park, where you are sure to spot an array of local wildlife. Above all else, Coffin Bay is most famous for the Coffin Bay oyster — regarded as one of the best oysters in the world. People come from far and wide to taste them straight from the source, standing waist-deep in the turquoise waters. Or if you would rather try them on land, you can do so in many of the town’s eateries.
