Swim, relax or explore the beaches on the Surf Coast


There’s something so relaxing about sitting by the ocean and watching the waves crash along the shore. Located along the Pacific Ocean, the Surf Coast offers beautiful beaches and coastlines with soft sand, clear blue water, rocky shores and heathlands.

Explore a new beach every day, or relax and unwind at your favourite local spot.

The Surf Coast beaches are the perfect family hotspot and offer something for the adventurous souls and those seeking relaxation.
