Esperance has hundreds of islands, reefs and sandbanks that when conditions are right, can offer good surfing waves. The beaches closest to town which usually boast the best surfing are: 

Surfing Beaches

West Beach

Fairly consistent beach and reef breaks, better at low tide though, with northerly winds and south-westerly swells. Watch out for very strong rips and currents. Conditions can change quickly.

Chapman's Point

This is a powerful point break over a patchy reef which is best in south-west to southerly swells and north-west to north-easterly winds. You need to pull out at the exact time to avoid the sharp reef. We advise only competent surfers to try this break.

Second Beach

Offers fairly consistent sand banks, better at low tide, northerly winds and south-westerly swells.

Fourth Beach

You can find quite a few different sand bank breaks (depending on past weather conditions) right along this stretch of beach. It's best in up to 2 metre south to south-westerly swells and north-westerly to north-easterly winds.

Twilight Beach

This beach is more protected due to the large rocks which break the open waves. It's a safe beach which is patrolled by Surf Life Savers on Sundays during the summer months. Performs best in up to 2 metre south to south-westerly swells and north-westerly to north-easterly winds.
