Waves and Tide Emu Park Main Beach is the surfing beach for Emu Park, usually offering a low beach break. The
waves average 0.5-1 metres, which break across a wide, low gradient beach. At high tide the
beach is 50 metres wide, extending to over 200 metres wide at low tide.
Swimming Emu Park Main Beach is a quiet beach, with calm waters. The beach is patrolled by Surf Life Saving. This beach is a relatively safe beach, and at its best during mid to high tide. However, when waves
exceed 0.5 metres rips may occur at low tide and around the rocks.
Fishing Fishing is best off the rocks at each end.
