A 1h drive from Hobart is Eaglehawk Neck, another thin isthmus of land that seems to attract nice sandbars along its extensive curve. Handles a good bit of swell and offers long rides when it is triangulating from out the back to the beach. Heavy paddle-outs and drift at times. Eaglehawk reef is at the north end of Pirates Bay and is a very sucky lefthander that requires NE swell and W-NW winds to create a barrel-fest for experts only
Good summer spot and ok for beginners when small. Very sharky reputation since the convict days!
