There is competitive surfboard riding conditions for experienced surfers. Plus Council Lifeguard Services provided Monday to Saturday during swimming season and volunteer members of Merewether Surf Lifesaving Club provides beach patrols on Sundays during the swimming season. There are change room facilities and a cafe/kiosk available all year round.
