We left Tractor Beach and on the road through Ceduna we spotted the BIG oyster and stopped for a quick photo and play at the park. It was good Friday and the little town was mostly closed. We were on a fast track to a little beach that is well known by South Australian Surfers – Cactus Beach. The beach is on a magnificent piece of coast line with three distinct surf breaks – Cactus with beginner waves almost guaranteed and then Castles a central break on the beach and to the right a wave called Caves by the locals (we were told). the foreshore of Cactus Beach is privately owned and Ron the land owner has established one of the most well planned, clean and spaced out camp grounds we have ever visited –with flushing toilets, shelters and fires with wood delivered nightly included in the cost of the visit.
Aaron and Andrew got out on the surf board and caught a few waves on cactus which was a high light for them both.
We were not sure what to expect as we had been warned that there were a lot of field mice in the Cactus camps and this was true however they were a minor pest and fine if you had your food stored away!
Cactus Beach is a piece of paradise for any surfer and just amazing scenery for the less adventurous – we were only able to stay one night but this is on the ‘must return another day’ list as it had a great vibe and beautiful scenery. But shhh don’t tell everyone as sites are limited.
