Practice your surfing skills at Avalon Beach, noted for a small natural rock pool at its southern end. This ocean pool is located under a cliff, which shelters it from high winds and provides a convenient viewing platform. Take advantage of the parking areas and tourist amenities located at the northern end of the beach, and use the Avalon shopping center, within walking distance of the water, for all your last-minute beach needs. Please remember that this beach is potentially hazardous for inexperienced swimmers, despite being patrolled by lifeguards, and that the safest swimming area is at the rock pool. Surfers are advised to always stay between the flags marking the safe zone. Put Avalon Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Avalon Beach visit planner .
