Jones Beach

Jones Beach - Kiama

New South Wales, South Coast


A good spot for beginners within a short drive north of Kiama, Jones Beach is a good option to find a bit more space if the beaches in town are busy. The southern corner of the beach also offers decent protection from moderate south swells and south winds.

Wave Type
During small swells, lefts and rights break along the beach with the waves spilling more slowly and softly than the dumping waves that are often present at Kiama's town beaches. Smaller waves can be found at the southern end during south swells. Watch out for rips that break up the sandbars along with long shore gutters.

On small swells and west to north wind conditions, fun waves can also be found at Bombo Beach (a short walk north from Kiama). If the surf is big from a north or east swell, head down to Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa for safer conditions. During really big south swells when the waves at Jones Beach are too big, the options for beginner surfers are in the whitewater at Seven Mile Beach or further south at the more sheltered southern corners of Culburra or Currarong Beaches for smaller waves.

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

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

Hazards
Rocks, Rip Currents and Marine life.

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

Access
Car parks are located at both ends of the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled on weekends and public holidays from the October holidays until the 25th of April. Daily patrols also occur during the summer school holidays in December and January - 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

Closest Shops
Food and coffee can be found at the shops behind the surf club, or head into Kiama for a variety of cafes, restaurants, boutiques and surf shops.
