The West Beach marina consists of a southern breakwater that provides shelter for the boat ramp. Between the boat ramp and the smaller northern rock groyne is a 50 m long protected sand beach. (231B) While this beach is usually calm it is used for launching boats and jet skis and often unsuitable and unsafe for swimming because of the boat traffic.

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.
