Werri is distinguished by having point breaks at both ends of the beach, so there’s often a nice wave peeling nicely off either the north or south headland. Smooth even when the summer nor’easter is blowing, the north point starts to break across the rocky reef that extends from the headland, then generates a fatter wave closer to shore that’s beloved of long-boarders. Beach breaks to the south are dependent on variable sandbanks, but there’s often a decent wave right in front of the famous Werri Beach Fish Shop three-quarters of the way down the beach. The south headland is the spot in a southerly swell and wind.
The town of Gerringong is one of the south coast’s loveliest, and accommodation options include motels, bed and breakfasts, a beachside campground and a YHA backpackers
