Bunker Bay

Bunker Bay

Australia's South West Coast


Whilst the waves here are often tiny, this normally tranquil north facing beach located inside Geographe Bay can be a sheltered option during really big swells. The waves tend to be steep and break quickly when it gets big here, so stick to the whitewater if you are just starting out with surfing. During summer the wind is often offshore at Bunker Bay when the persistent Freemantle Doctor southwest winds are blowing. The waves are often also tiny making this spot great for a swim and for introducing kids to surfing.

Wave Type
Fast breaking rights and lefts break along the beach with the smallest waves and shortest rides normally at the western end of the beach. For catching whitewater waves, find the broadest sandbar that is attached to the beach and stick to it - watch out for rips, especially towards the eastern end where the biggest waves are.

If the surf is flat here, check out the more exposed beaches on the west facing coast down south of Margaret River like Redgate Beach or Hamelin Bay or head towards the Bunbury beach breaks to the north (watch out for rocks).

Good Wind Direction
Best on South West to South East winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Big South to South West swells, moderate West and small North swells.

Hazards
Rocks, Rip Currents and Marine Life.

Have fun surfing Bunker Bay by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Access
The car park is located at the western end of the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Bunker Bay is not patrolled. Head to Busselton or Smiths Beach near Yallingup for the closest patrolled beaches during summer - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

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

Amenities
Located on Farm Break lane near the café at the western end of the beach.

Closest Shops
Bunkers Beach Café has good food and coffee, otherwise head into Busselton for a wider range of food, shops and services.
