Myponga Beach is a locality in the Australian state of South Australia located on the west coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula overlooking Gulf St Vincent about 54 kilometres (34 mi)* south of the state capital of Adelaide.

Myponga Beach originally began as a shack site on section 240 in the cadastral unit of the Hundred of Myponga. Boundaries were created for the “long established name” in 1999.
