Surfing at Boranup Beach

Boranup Beach is a powerful exposed beach break that offers left and right-handers that are suitable to all skills levels.

  • Activities:Surfing
  • Type:Activity Sites

Description

Boranup Beach offers realtively consistent surf, especially during the Winter months. The break works on all tides with the best waves rolling in with offshore winds coming from the north-northeast and swells from the west-southwest. The break is relatively isolated so even on good days, the crowds tend to be limited. On smaller days, the waves are not as powerful, making the break perfect for beginners, especially with the soft sand bank. Beware of rips and sharks. 

Boranup Beach can be accessed via a bumpy 4x4 track off Boranup Drive. Once you reach the end off the track you then head north along the beach to the break, however the sand can be very soft so make sure do let your tyres down otherwise you could get bogged.
