  • Whale Beach

It is a 600m long, beach east-facing beach bordered by 40m high Little and Careel heads and backed by slopes rising to 100m, covered in houses. 

Surfing

In the right conditions, ‘the wedge’ produces waves like no other. 

When the winds are coming from the south east, the waves roll through and bounce off the rock ledge, creating the beautiful ‘wedge’ effect. It’s quick to get going and you’ll be riding quickly down the line.

The wedge is for more experienced surfers, but there’s good beach breaks which can be fun with a north-east or east swell.
