About Cox Bay

Both ends of the flat, broad beach offer plenty in the way of shifty beachbreak walls, while the middle of the beach combines both the N and S swell energy to throw up some decent wedge peaks. The whole shebang generally closes out with anything over six-feet, but surprises can be had. The southern headland offers good protection against S winds. Cox is a huge beach, so there's plenty of room for everyone.
