Surfing in Windy Point, Cronulla, New South Wales Australia

Skill Level:
Experienced
Cronulla is a beach-side suburb in southern Sydney, at about 26 km/16 mi in the south of Sydney's CBD (Central Business District). Cronulla lies on a peninsula, between Botany Bay on the north and Port Hacking on the south. Cronulla is a popular tourist location and attracts many beach enthusiasts.

Mark Occhilupo, the famous professional surfer and world champion made Cronulla beach a famous surf spot. The beach features a long stretch of sand, extending from Boat Harbor to North Cronulla. Windy Point lies between Shelly beach and Oak Park. This spot is an exposed reef break that offers consistent surf.

Windy Point is suitable for experienced surfers only. The best wind direction is from the southwest, west and the ideal swell direction is from the east, northeast. Surfers can explore the waves with swell sizes from less than 1 m-1.5 m/3 ft-5 ft and holds up to 2.5 m/8 ft.

The best tide movement is rising and falling tides and the ideal tide position is mid and high tide. This spot is usually less crowded than the rest of Cronulla, so it is a great place for surfers who hate beach crowds.

Apart from surfing, you can enjoy the magnificent view of the sea in one of the many restaurants and cafes that lie on the streets around the beach. Note: watch out for sharks, rocks, rips and pollution.
