The Chiton Rocks section (157C) usually has several small rips between the rocks and the southern sandy foreland. The Chiton Rocks surf club patrols this central 1 km long section of the beach. The main Goolwa-Victor Harbour Road runs 400 m inland parallel to the beach. However the beach is not well sign posted and you might need a street map to find it. The road eventually reaches the beach with a long car park, and the surf club sitting below a 20 m high grassy bluff and the beach.
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.
There is usually a narrow beach break favoured more by body boarders than surfers.
The rocks attract most fishers, while a good cast can reach the deeper water beyond the usually narrow bar.
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.Read less
