What To Do At Merewether Beach
Merewether Beach is a beautiful stretch of sand that has been carefully thought out to ensure accessibility for everyone. The facilities found at this site include: Accessible toilets, parking and a picnic area; also available are accessible showers (with changeable levers) as well as kiosks with power outlets where one can charge their devices while they enjoy themselves in the sun. There's plenty here whether you're looking after yourself or having someone else do so full-time - all those who visit will never be disappointed by what they've got on offer.
The cliffs and rocks of Merewether Beach are beautiful, but they also make for some very hazardous shoreline. Rip currents can be powerful enough to drag you out into deep water if you're not watchful - so stay close! Also note that this beach does not offer lifeguards or any other kind adequate protection against emergencies; always keep yourself safe by swimming between the flags (and away from those rips).
The home of four time World Surfing Champion Mark Richards, this beach offers good breaks particularly on the outer bar during moderate swell. When it gets larger The Ladies reef at Merewether produces solid rights up to 3 meters and will hold a south-east swells height of 5 m.
Fishing is a popular pastime in this area. There are plenty of fish to be caught, and the permanent gutters make it easy for anglers on their way back from dropping off line after an exciting day at sea.
