Fleurieu Peninsula Sights

Boomer Beach

Fodor's Review

The surf here is very big thanks to the exposed reef break. Most waves are dumpers, hence the name Boomer, and can get up to 15 feet high. As a result, this is a beach for surfers and strong swimmers. Waves decrease toward Victor Harbor, providing lower surf and usually calm conditions. In summer the surf tends to be mostly flat, but you need to be vigilant of rocks, rips, and sharks year-round. There is an excellent view down the entire beach from the headland at Port

Elliot; from here you can spot the southern right whale, which in winter claims this area as its territory. Amenities: lifeguards, parking, toilets. Best for: surfing, fishing, swimming.
