Woodside Beach is the southernmost access with facilities on Ninety Mile Beach. The beach is located in the centre of this straight, 8 km long, south-east facing section. The waves usually arrive from the south-west to south-east and average 1.3 m. These combine with the fine sand to produce a beach with a low slope, fronted by a usually continuous attached inner bar, which is cut by rips during and following higher waves. Seaward of this bar is a continuous 2 m deep trough and an outer bar, which is cut by rips every few hundred metres. Westerly winds both increase the waves and intensify the flow of rip and trough currents to the north. The beach is patrolled by the Woodside Surf Life Saving Club; the newest in the state, being formed in 1968; and is also backed by parking and picnic areas and a caravan park.
