Any keen surfer has heard of Gnaraloo, Tombstones or Red Bluff on the Mid West coast. But venture a little further north and you'll find WA's best kept surfing secret - the Ningaloo Coast. Best swells occur around July - October, so grab your board, head north and catch a wave.
Dunes (Surfers Beach)
To get to Dunes, take the Yardie Creek Road west then turn onto Mildura Wreck Road and take the short track into the first carpark on the left. Located approximately 17km from Exmouth, this reef break is the safest, easiest to access and probably the most popular beach for surfers in Exmouth.
The Bommie is located just around the corner from Dunes, off Yardie Creek Road. It's a bit of a paddle out to this break, but well worth the effort for a left handed ride. The Bommie is not recommended for inexperienced surfers.
Wobiri Access Beach is located approximately 25km from Exmouth on the western side of the Peninsula, off Yardie Creek Road. This surf break is great for beginners and grommets. During the winter season surf lessons are regularly conducted here.
Surf charters can be arranged to the locations below through companies operating out of both Coral Bay and Exmouth. Passengers can choose from a number of options regarding surf spots depending on the number of days chartered. For more information and bookings, please contact the staff at the Exmouth Visitor Centre.
The North and South Muiron Islands are surrounded by reefs that offer a variety of breaks.
This group of approximately 140 small islands are located approximately 80km from the North West Cape. All waves at 'the Monte's' as they are known, are reef breaks.
