Cottesloe is a fairly exposed beach and groyne break that is relatively consistent all year around.
- Type:Sites & Trails
Cottesloe Beach offers left and right-handers on either side of the groyne, with the south side being a popular break for long borders and stand up paddle boarders. The break works best in offshore east-southeasterly winds with swells coming from the southwest, on a mean tide. During summer the break will reamin relatively flat however, it will sometimes produce a small rolling wave perfect for the beginner surfer. Cottesloe is often crowded, especially when the waves are good. Beware of the reef, rocks and rips.
