The Lakes Entrance Surf Life Saving Club is located at the end of the footbridge from the town of Lakes Entrance. This is a popular beach for bathing, surfing, walking and fishing; particularly as it is the closest and most accessible beach to Lakes Entrance. The surf lifesaving club was founded in 1956 and averages 17 rescues a year. The beach is only accessible by car at three locations: Red Bluff in the north; at the Eastern Beach car park in the centre; and via the Lakes Entrance footbridge.
Only bathe between the flags at the surf club, as this is an exposed beach with deep troughs and persistent rips. Rips increase adjacent to Red Bluff and toward the entrance walls. Strong winds, particularly from the south and west, intensify the longshore and rip currents.
A popular spot, more for its accessibility than its waves. Best at Red Bluff, where the reefs provide more consistent breaks, and toward the lake entrance where tidal shoals can produce some longer rides. Otherwise the beach breaks depend on the bars, waves, tide and wind and hence are highly variable. All spots are best in a northerly, with moderate south swell.
Like most of Ninety Mile Beach, this is very popular for beach fishing, with a deep trough usually running the length of the beach. Rip channels or holes are also common. Rock and reef fishing on Ninety Mile Beach is only available at Red Bluff and at the north entrance wall.
This is the most popular spot on Ninety Mile Beach. It offers a safer, patrolled beach, with plenty of room for walking and fishing. However, the deep trough and rips produce hazardous bathing conditions and a reasonable surf. So bathe between the flags and only surf with friends.Read less
