Where mother nature meets
father time

You can bet you’ll find a wave or two along Bombo beach, one of the region’s most popular breaks. Stick to the north end for most of the action but don’t ignore the south. It gets its fair share of swell, with fun and friendly waves to suit all skill levels. Head even further south to the famous photogenic Cathedral Rocks upright formations. (Have your camera ready!) A short detour to the beautiful sheltered cove known as the Boneyard is a must-do, while the dramatic Bombo headland is truly ‘out of this world’. These monolithic basalt columns and weathered rock formations are popular with location scouts and instagrammers alike — living examples of geology, mining and erosion in action.

Right, left, right

Bombo or Boneyard? Both great choices. Boneyard offers a reef break, mostly rights, while Bombo also offers plenty for the goofy and regular footed to swoon over. Bring your paw-footed friends for the trip, and enjoy picnic tables and sweeping views on the grassy headland.

Boneyard is our best kept not-so-secret secret. The short walk down will be enough to impress with tropical forest along a wooden foot path that opens up to an idyllic bay. Pack a picnic and don’t forget your snorkeling gear!
