Parsons Beach is a locality on the western side of Yorke Peninsula and eastern side of Spencer Gulf in South Australia. There is a small town at the north end of the locality, set behind the sandhills from the beach.

Before 5 September 2017, the village of Parsons Beach was formally the northwestern corner of the locality of Minlaton.[3] On that date, the Government of South Australia declared that Parsons Beach was a separate locality.[4] The name "Parsons Beach" for the subdivision of the village was approved on 27 August 1982 by the Geographical Names Board.[1]
