Located on the Great Ocean Road to the West of Torquay, Anglesea is small tourist town with a fun, sandy beach break. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and can break for up to 100 meters, providing sections for turns and airs. There are a couple other waves in the area, including a rivermouth and inconsistent reef break.
