Surf Beach – Inverloch

Surf Beach - Inverloch

Victoria, Gippsland Coast


Surf Beach at Inverloch is a great spot for introducing kids (and timid big kid) to the surf zone, due to the flat sandbar and normally small wave conditions found at this sheltered beach. A short drive from Phillip Island, Inverloch can be a quieter option for surfing than Smiths Beach on the island, during the busy summer holiday season.

Wave Type
With the safest part of the beach for surfing in front of the surf club, Inverloch Surf Beach normally has a flat and wide sandbar with small and soft spilling waves rolling slowly to shore. Shelter from west winds improves the further west along the beach you head (watch out for rocks).

Avoid the potentially dangerous Inlet entrance part of the beach to the east, where strong rip currents flow between the uneven sandbars. If the surf is flat here, more experienced surfers will find bigger waves and protection from north east winds at the more treacherous and isolated beaches between Cape Paterson and Phillip Island to the west.

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

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Moderate West swells and small South West to South East swells.

Hazards
- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine Life

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

Access
The car park is located at the surf club in the middle of the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled on weekends and public holidays from December until April and daily from 29th December until 25th of 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.

Located beside the surf club.
