Cape Jervis (coord|35|36|S|138|06|E|type:city(800)_region:AU-SA, postcode: 5204) is a town at the southwestern tip of Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, approximately 108 km south of Adelaide. The population is approximately 300 people and growing rapidly, with a new estate (Cape Jervis heights) situated behind the main town. Cape Jervis falls under the local governance of the District Council of Yankalilla.

Matthew Flinders named Cape Jervis after John Jervis, the British First Lord of the Admiralty in 1802.

Cape Jervis marks the beginning of the famous Heysen Trail walking track which extends all the way to the Flinders Ranges. It is also close to Deep Creek Conservation Park and Talisker Conservation Park.

There are two nearby beaches - sandy Morgan's Beach, and pebbly Fisheries Beach (with remains of an old whaling station).

The waters surrounding Cape Jervis are part of Backstairs Passage and have excellent fishing.

Vehicle ferries use Cape Jervis as the mainland port for the crossing of Backstairs Passage to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island.
