This popular Sydney beach is long and wide, with surf spots and places with waves. But on patrolled days, Maroubra has yellow flags that mark the safest place to swim.
There are also rock pools to enjoy, great for families with small children. The park is also good for families looking for a place to picnic, there are shaded areas to play as well.
Maroubra’s surf is well known, it is considered to be the most consistent, day to day. See the Maroubra Beach Map.
There is a free outdoor gym, walking tracks and there are beginning surf lessons available. Fishing is also allowed in certain areas.
Located at the north end of the beach, the bright blue and white building serves as the Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club. Swim only between the red and yellow flags. If there are no flags, the beach is not being patrolled at that time.
On particular days the surf can get big, with cross-currents and rips. Only strong swimmers should venture out, but between the flags. Board riders, boogie board riders, canoes can usually find a good spot to take advantage of the larger surf waves.
Familiarise yourself with the advice posted on any safety signs that are at the beach. You can get further advice from the Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club.
