Surf Beach – Beachport

Surf Beach - Beachport

South Australia, Limestone Coast

A good option for when Long Beach at Robe is blown out during north winds, the south facing Surf Beach at Beachport offers beginner surfers gentle waves on most days with the best spot for surfing to the east of town over the bridge.

Wave Type
Soft breaking close out waves roll across the wide and broad sandbars in front of the beach car park located to the east of the lake entrance. On most days, the waves are suitable for catching both whitewater waves close to shore or green waves a long way out the back.

Head south down the beach for more consistent and bigger peaks and at times better wave shape with rights and lefts often breaking - avoid the rip currents that also form, especially towards the very exposed and remote middle part of the beach. When the waves are big from a south swell or the wind is strong from the south, head to Robe for smaller waves and smoother surface conditions.

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

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

- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine Life

From Beachport, the beach sweeps south down to the sheltered southern corner of Southend Beach which can be a great spot to seek shelter from southerly winds.
