Surfers will know that there is often nothing better than diving into the ocean as the sun rises in the morning.
From the sting of salt in your eyes through to the comforting feeling that comes from having great water under your board, it is hard to find a better way to start the day.
And while there are a number of great surfing destinations in Tasmania, a trip to the island state is not complete without spending time in the seaside areas close to Marrawah.
Nestled in among breathing-taking ocean views from a great beach, but adjacent to rocky shores, and a headland, wild winds have come to define the far North West of Tasmania as a big wave place which will test your skill.
Greens Beach and the nearby ‘Point’ (which has a great left lift) and Periwinkle are easily on Tasmania’s top locations for anyone wanting to try their hand at different surfing styles including kite and windsurfing. The area was formerly the site for part of the Billabong Blue Water Classic Series attracting surfers from all over the world.
However, it is also a great place to unwind and take in the natural beauty of this seemingly untouched part of the world. Facilities are sparse in the area – it is a favourite
An easy drive from Stanley and Smithton or a full day trek over from Launceston, it is the ultimate weekend destination for anyone wanting to look for the perfect wave.
