Margaret River is perhaps best known for its surfing, famously hosting the Margaret River Pro each year. At the Surfers Retreat only minutes away from some of the best surf spots the region

has to offer.Whether you are a beginner or an experienced surfer there are over 75 surf breaks in the region. If you want to give it a go or just rent some equipment we recommend Josh Palmateer’s Surf Academy at the River Mouth or ring Josh on 0418 958 264 or 

For the experienced surfers, there is a house copy of the Surfing Margaret River Cape to Cape guide on the coffee table that has all the info you need. It’s incredibly comprehensive and has all the detail on all the spots. Terri has done an awesome job. If you want to buy your own copy in advance, its available online at

The closest spots to the Surfers Retreat we recommend are are Surfers Point, Rivermouth, the Box, Grunters and Redgate. We use Coastalwatch to monitor the conditions and find the webcams very reliable.
