Karatta Beach (137) is a 150 m long northeast facing beach that has built up against the channel trailing wall. A gravel road runs right to the wall where there is limited parking. This beach is used more for launching sailboats, which are stored on the beach, rather than for swimming.

Swimming

The five protected beaches are all relatively safe under normal wave conditions. However be careful of rips against the rocks when waves exceed 0.5 m, and of the rocks themselves. Long Beach is safest at the southern pedestrian end, where waves are usually less than 1 m and rips absent. However once up the beach, wave height increases to more than 1 m, the surf zone widens and rips occur every few hundred meters.

Surfing

Long Beach is Robe’s main and most popular surfing beach. It offers a wide surf zone, with usually moderate breakers spilling across the low gradient beach.

Fishing

Robe has a wide range of fishing locations, including the jetty, breakwater and low rocky headlands, beach fishing along Long Beach, and boat fishing in the Bay and over the inner reefs.

General

Robe has long been a popular holiday destination for people form Adelaide. It has now been discovered by the Victorian’s, causing it to be the most popular coastal town in South Australia.
