Back Beach – Lancelin

Back Beach

Western Australia, Lancelin

Lancelin is a more consistent surf spot than those found around Perth, and can be great for surfers of all levels. Back Beach has a broad sandbar for those wanting to practise in the whitewater and some fun peaks out the back for surfers who can catch green waves. This is a beautiful and wild place with surf beaches, protected coves, massive sand dunes, numerous shipwrecks and plenty of open space to practise your surfing skills.

Wave Type
Rips along the beach break up the uneven sandbars here with the smallest waves normally found in the northern corner of the beach. When the surf is big the shifting, peaky nature of the waves can prove very challenging for all but experienced surfers, so stick to the whitewater when the waves are big. When the surf is small, fun rights and lefts break over the sandbars up and down the beach. Lancelin also gets windy during summer, so surf early before the wind strengthens and messes up the surf conditions.

There are many open beaches to the north and south of Lancelin with waves, but you'll need a good four-wheel drive to access this remote region and a friend with decades of surfing experience if you want to head into the water at these isolated spots.

Good Wind Direction
Best on North to South East winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small South to West swells and moderate North swells.

- Rocks
- Rip Currents

Have fun surfing Lancelin by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

There are car parks at the northern end of the beach, south of town.

Lifeguard Patrolled
The beaches of Lancelin are not patrolled, with Yanchep to the south being the closest patrolled beach - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches with Lifeguards on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located at the Back Beach Lancelin car park.

Closest Shops
Lancelin is home to a few cafes, take aways, restaurants and a tavern. A general store and Lancelin Surf Sports are also located in the centre of town.
