The Boomer beach section (157A) begins amongst the rocks of Freeman Knob. Its name refers to the often heavily dumping waves on this reflective to low tide terrace beach.

Swimming

Boomer-Chiton Rocks is a moderately safe beach with a patrolled area, however watch for poorly defined rips, particularly against the rocks, and be careful of the often heavy shorebreak. Waves decrease toward Victor Harbour providing lower surf and usually calm conditions at Victor Harbour.

Surfing

There is usually a narrow beach break favoured more by body boarders than surfers.

Fishing

The rocks attract most fishers, while a good cast can reach the deeper water beyond the usually narrow bar.

General

Chiton Rocks is a patrolled beach missed by most tourists and frequented more by the locals. Most of the tourists head for the very accessible and low energy Victor Harbour beach.
