Lakes Entrance Beaches

Lakes Entrance Beaches

Victoria, Gippsland


Popular during summer holidays, the long stretch of beach at Lakes Entrance can be good for learning to surf during small surf days which can be common during the summer months. This very exposed south facing coastline can however produce dangerous surf conditions when the swell is up, with deep, strong rips and long shore currents along the beaches here making surfing very treacherous for beginners, so stay close to the patrolled areas and take note of the lifeguards signs and advice.

Wave Type
Offshore in north winds, fun rights and lefts break when the waves are small. Avoid the many rips and longshore gutters that form along this long stretch of sand by finding a sandbar close to the surf club that is attached to the beach, along with a landmark and stick to it.

If the surf is too challenging here during west winds and west to south west swells, better shelter can be sought the further west along this stretch of coastline you head, with Golden Beach, Seaspray and Woodside Beach potential options for smaller waves and smoother surf conditions, or give surfing a miss for the day and go and explore this peaceful environment.

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

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small South West to East swells.

Hazards
Rocks, Rip Currents and Marine life.

Have fun surfing Lakes Entrance by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Access
Park in town and walk across the footbridge to the beach where the surf club is located.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled daily during the summer school holidays and on weekends from December until the end of April - 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 at the surf club.

Closest Shops
A wide range of cafes, restaurants, take away shops, supermarkets, along with The Surf Shack and Sandbar Surf are all located in the centre of Lakes Entrance.
