Swimming and Surfing

Phillip Island is renowned as one of the most consistent and varied surf locations in Australia. The swell is rarely too small to surf and depending on the swell size you can usually find a sheltered break in any wind.

During the year Phillip Island plays host to many surf clinics and tournaments for men, women and juniors. For the beginner or those wanting to refine your skills why not book a lesson?

Surf beaches on the south coast can be very dangerous, so please check with locals on suitable beaches. Better still call into any of the local surf stores for advice on wave, wind and sea conditions.
