About Clifton Beach

Clifton Beach is Hobart’s most popular spot, only 30min drive from the city centre. The south end is usually a bit softer where a defined right appears on moderate SE-S swells and offers some protection from W winds. Up the beach is a bit pushier and the sandbanks are flanked by deep channels to help deal with the common close-out. Can be mushy and gutless in small, onshore conditions.

Always a crowd when it's on and even when it's not! Good beginners set-up plus all facilities on this patrolled beach.
