1 Town Beach
Robe 5276, SA
Town Beach (138) is the most popular of the town beaches. It extends from in front of Robe Hotel for 300Ã‚ m to 10Ã‚ m high rocky Robe Point. A large beachfront caravan park backs the eastern end of the beach and the Point. A small groyne crosses the last 50Ã‚ m of the beach.
The five protected beaches are all relatively safe under normal wave conditions. However be careful of rips against the rocks when waves exceed 0.5Ã‚ m, and of the rocks themselves. Long Beach is safest at the southern pedestrian end, where waves are usually less than 1Ã‚ m and rips absent. However once up the beach, wave height increases to more than 1Ã‚ m, the surf zone widens and rips occur every few hundred meters.
