Surfing is a big drawcard in the area because of the pristine waters and the fact that you can get a wave without having to compete with a beachful of other surfers. There are protected beaches with gentle waves for the kids and serious breaks if you love surfing. This is a rugged coastline though, exposed to the Tasman Sea and care should always be taken, even in the calmest bays and lakes.
If you’d like to learn to surf there are accredited surf schools that conduct surfing lessons at Narooma and Camel Rock. Boards and wetsuits as well as expert tuition are provided.
The Beach safe website and App are a great tool to have on your beach going holiday. It lists ALL the beaches, large and small, in the Eurobodalla. The Surf Life Saving Australia BeachSafe site includes the location, facilities, weather, conditions and lifesaving services for all Australian beaches to help you find the right beach. BeachSafe also provides expert advice about flags and signs, waves, rip currents, marine creatures, surf skills and more.
