Cave Beach is also a popular spot for surfers.

In the southern hemisphere winter, the whale migration is a special experience – whales usually migrate in June and early July. When the whales make their southerly migration in spring they sometimes come very close to shore and play in the sheltered bays with their new-born calves.
