Home to the Margaret River Pro surf tournament, Surfers Point is an internationally renowned surf spot. It’s the main surf break along the area’s southwestern coastline and it nearly always has great waves – often up to twelve feet or more. Some pro surfers opt for a Hawaiian style tow-in by jet ski to get the biggest breaking waves. The parking lot here is nearly always full with surfers and onlookers gasping at the riders getting perfectly “tubed” before the waves crash on to a shallow reef. The waters are electric blue and green, and kept a toasty warm thanks to the current coming southward from the Tropics. Unless you’re a title-holder, you may want to safely stay on dry ground at Surfers Point.
