Description

Main Beach stretches for 32 kilometres of unspoilt sand, dunes and surf. It is popular with boardriders and bodysurfers who enjoy the big swells. The waves are large and powerful and the views are spectacular.

The headland is the best vantage point for watching the surfing action and spotting dolphins. Main Beach is best during northerly winds, when snorkelling and scuba diving are suitable along the north wall.
