Campwin and Sarina beaches are the two main surfing beaches for the sugar town of Sarina, located 15 km inland on the Bruce Highway. They share the same 2 km long stretch of beach between Coral and Perpetua Points, with Leeper Reef and adjoining rock flats separating the two at low tide (Fig. 4.65). Campwin beach (1140) lies to the north of the rocks and is 350 m long, faces east and receives waves averaging 0.5 m. It has a relatively steep high tide beach and a 200 m wide low tide bar. The beach is backed by four rows of houses and has a store and small beachfront reserve with basic facilities. A boat ramp into Castrades Inlet is located at the back of the beach.

Swimming

A relatively safe, patrolled beach when waves are less than 0.5 m. Be careful when waves exceed 0.5 m as they can produce rips, particularly at low tide. Campwin beach is patrolled occasionally with roving IRB patrols from Sarina SLSC.

Surfing

Usually a low, sloppy beach break, best at mid to low tide.

Fishing

Best off the southern head, as the beach can only be fished at high tide.

General

A popular spot with locals and holiday-makers, with all the facilities required for a day trip or a longer stay.
