Wirrina Cove is a locality on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia. It is located between the coastal towns of Second Valley and Normanville on Yankalilla Bay. Features include a 270 berth marina named Marina St. Vincent, holiday accommodation and a golf course. The marina was initially approved for development in 1988. It was intended to support regional tourism opportunities, including sunset cruises and day trips across Backstairs Passage to Kangaroo Island.

The Wirrina Cove marina received planning approval from the Government of South Australia in 1988. Construction was expected to start in 1989 and take 10 months to complete. At the time of its construction, it was described as a $45 million project. After its completion, the marina was renamed Marina St. Vincent.
