 Additional Information

Noetsie can get very good at times. Best enjoyed in summer with small to medium swell (anything between 2-5 foot.) Anything bigger at most times of the rest of the year and it doesnt break properly. (Picks up alot of swell here, so its always on!!) There are a few spots (reefbreaks and beachies) in the reserve which you dont have to look too hard to find. Down by the beach there is a righthander that peels into the rocky bay. Pretty straightforward wave.

Atmosphere

Watch out for currents and sharks here. There have been attacks and many people have drowned here so come with abit of knoledge about the sea. Not advised for beginners.

General

Noetsie Beach and the reserve has beautiful, unspoiled surroundings. There are a few castles on the beach, build by some wealthy German years ago. (No idea why?)
