The east-coast ports of Ardrossan, Port Vincent and Edithburgh are all pleasant to visit, but EDITHBURGH offers the most facilities. There’s also a tidal swimming pool set in a rocky cove, and from Troubridge Hill you can see across to the Fleurieu Peninsula and the offshore Troubridge Island Conservation Park, with its 1850s iron lighthouse. Accommodation is available in the lighthouse-keeper’s cottage, which sleeps up to ten and a minimum of four – if you stay here you’ll have the whole island to yourself.
