Wyomi Beach (148C) is the name of a holiday-retirement settlement and beach located just east of Kingston SE. The 3 km of beach faces north west and receives waves averaging less than 0.5 m, which build a low flat beach. There is a beach boat ramp and vehicle access along the beach. Most of the houses are located behind a 200 to 300 m wide nature reserve which runs the length of the beach, and is crossed by several pedestrian and vehicle access tracks.
Swimming conditions range from relatively safe along the Lacapede Bay beaches, to moderately safe up to The Granites, and then increasingly hazardous as the higher energy beaches north of The Granites are encountered. The biggest problems are large scale rips in the inner surf zone spaced approximately every 500 m, strong set-up and set-down which produced strong seaward flowing currents, and the big surf. Always be very careful if entering the surf anywhere north of Blackford Drain.
There is 160 km of beach breaks along The Coorong, it’s just a matter of driving along until you see a break that suits you. The better waves break on the outer bar which can mean a 400 to 500 m paddle. So its best to be fit and surf with friends.
The Coorong is a very popular beach for fishing, with the majority of the 4WD vehicles belonging to fishers. During summer and weekends they set up many camps along the beach.
Australia’s longest beach, which grades from no waves to one of the world’s highest energy beaches. It is a spectacular beach backed by extensive dune north of The Granites, very accessible by 4WD, and with many kilometres of beach camping. However outside of Kings Camp and Kingston SE there are no facilities, apart from the camp sites.Read less
