BEACHES TO SUIT EVERYONE
Geraldton is surrounded by beaches where the water is calm and the water is wild!
As Geraldton is known as "windy city," it is no surprise wind and kite surfing are popular here in world class condtions, and best of all, it is usually uncrowded.
For windsurfers the best conditions are between November and April when gale force winds are blowing. The strongest breezes happen in mid summer and are ideal for high-speed slalom racing.
Beginners should come in the late morning while high winds in the afternoon attract the regulars and more experienced. Point Moore and St Georges Beach are the best known windsurfing locations.
Popular spots for surfing include Coronation, Medallia, Pages, Point Moore, Separation Point, Sunset and St Georges beaches. Back Beach is one of the most popular surfing beaches in Geraldton, also good for a swim or body surf. The Surf Life Saving Club patrols Back beach during the summer weekends, so make sure you swim between the red and yellow flags.
This beach is not recommended for children to swim due to the strong swell.
A 2 minute walk from the town centre brought me to calm waters and a beach, somewhere for the children to play in the sand and paddle. Beside the car-park were plenty of picnic shelters and bbq's and the Rubiks cube toilets are close by.
Kite and Wind Surfing
The best place for wind and kitesurfing is at Port Moore. This is a really popular place because of the wind – the windiest spot in Geraldton. Even some go as far to say the windiest place in the world. The beach is right opposite the lighthouse. St George’s Beach or if you want to go further, Coronation Beach which is 25kms north of Geraldton.
