The main West Beach (231C) faces west and extends for another 2.5 km from the northern marina groyne to the usually closed mouth of the Torrens River. The West beach Surf Life Saving Club is located at the southern end of the northern residential area, adjacent to the caravan park (Fig. 4.68 & 4.69). Just inside the Torrens breakwater is a large boat ramp which is very popular on weekends.

Swimming

The main beach at the surf club offers the best swimming conditions well clear of the breakwaters, groynes and boat traffic to the south. There are occasional water pollution problems on southern West Beach and at the Torrens mouth.

Surfing

Only during strong onshore winds.

Fishing

The training wall and marina breakwater and groyne are all very popular fishing spots.

General

A beach that has been modified by the river entrance walls and new marina, but still offers 2.5 km of natural beach and the added protection of the patrolled area.
