“Body surfers and strong swimmers only!”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

The short break makes it unsuitable for board surfers but totally perfect for body surfing.
Nice to just sit on the sand and watch the pounding waves.

“Hair raising!”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

You want surfing excitement and 'seat of your pants' thrills, then grab a boogy or surf board and head for Boomer. Boomer by name and boomer by nature. The sheer strength of the pounding surf and 'washing machine' whitewash is not for the faint hearted. Don't expect to be able to gracefully enter the water or 'paddle' your toes, this is for the die -hards - an inappropriate choice of words perhaps! Great beach!

“Peter & Barbara "Beautiful"”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

Horseshoe Bay in Port Elliot is the most pretty little place and will be another area we will like to go to again. The views are spectacular and it seems a quiet little place where you can go to relax. We went in winter and I hope it doesn't get too rowdy in the summer which would spoil the ambience of the place.

There's an excellent view down the entire beach from the headland at Port Elliot. If you're staying anywhere nearthe beach you'll drift off to sleep with the unceasing soundof breakers on the beach - wonderful!
