Park at the river mouth if you have a 2WD and either walk to your right to the point or left up the beach for about 10 minutes to "deserts". If you have a 4X4 you can drive
Deserts is pretty consistent as far as banks go and the point goes off when the conditions are right. All in all its worth the 30 minute drive out of Albany
A lot like Muttonbird island on the other side of Albany. A fun, and at times pretty hollow beach break

Nanarups mass waves - I've only been surfing there for a couple of months but the waves at the back can get pretty big and it is good to watch good locals play on the giants...not...biggest ive seen is about 3-4m.
