Woolamai Beach - VIC

1 Woolami beach
Cape Woolamai 3925, VIC

Woolamai (Surf) Beach is the longest and most exposed beach on Phillip Island, and is the site of the island's only surf lifesaving club, founded in 1959. The beach is 4.2 km long and faces south-west into the high waves and westerly winds. The persistently moderate to high waves average 1.7 m. Together with the fine to medium beach sand, they produce a moderately steep beach face. The 250 m wide surf zone contains an inner bar cut by strong, deep rips every 250 m, with an outer bar cut by more widely spaced rips. The rips usually scour deep holes in the beach, making them highly visible. The Woolamai Beach Road runs out to the beach and provides parking in the large car park at the surf club.

This is a surf for experienced bathers only. The waves are usually large, and the rips strong and close inshore. Stay between the flags at all times and avoid the rips, as an average of 55 people are rescued annually. This hazardous beach has the third highest number of rescues per year in Victoria, lower only than Portsea and Gunnamatta.
