Located in Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Apollo Bay is a small and beautiful tourist town with a few waves. The most prominent is a fun right hander that breaks off of a jetty over rock and sand. The waves here are not too tricky, and can peel nicely for up to 100 meters.
What are the best surf conditions for Apollo Bay?
Gets good between waist-high to double overhead. We recommend riding your longboard or standard shortboard here. This break is best suited to intermediate to advanced surfers. The wave is semi-consistent (5/10) but can also get busy on weekends and holidays (5/10). The best winds for Apollo Bay are west. The best swell direction is from the South, Southeast and Southwest. It works best if there is a little East in the swell. Watch for lower tides to score the peeling right at its best.
