Smoky Bay is a relaxed seaside town located approximately 60 km north of Streaky Bay and 40 km south east of Ceduna. Smoky Bay has beautiful beaches ideal for swimming, crabbing and windsurfing with a population of around 200 people.


Smoky Bay offers excellent jetty fishing for garfish, whiting, tommy ruff, trevally, snook and blue crabs. A concrete ramp is available and boat fishermen are rewarded with similar catches but also including snapper at certain times of the year.
