Umina – Ocean Beach

Umina - Ocean Beach

New South Wales, Central Coast



Small and gentle waves often break along this stretch of sand during all but the biggest of south east swells. Cruise along the beach to find the right sandbar and wave for your level and remember to practise surfing etiquette, as Umina is a busy and popular spot for surfers of all levels

Wave Type
Left and right peaks break along the length of the beach with the biggest waves normally breaking towards the middle of the beach. Rips break up the sandbars along the whole beach and particular care should be taken at the northern end of the beach.

It can be dead flat here during small north east swells in summer, when the more exposed surf beaches to the nor-east will have bigger waves. In moderate south to east swells however, this spot can be a heap of fun for practising surfing and this is also one of the safest surfing options in New South Wales to seek shelter from big swells from a northerly direction.

Best on South West to North East winds.
