One Mile Beach

About our beach

One Mile Beach is the home of the Cape Hawke Surf Lifesaving Club. With a golf course, parking and picnic areas and beautiful surroundings, it’s a popular spot with locals and visitors alike. The beach truly became popular in the 1970s, leading to the founding of the surf club in 1978. Today, the beach is often used for swimming and surfing. However, we advise everyone who heads into the waves to be careful. There are prominent, persistent rips as well as side currents. If you’re planning to swim, stay in the south between the flags or close to the shore. See more at beachsafe.org.au
