Highcliffe in South Coast of England is a fairly exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the north. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. Waves at the beach are mainly lefts. Good surf at all stages of the tide. A remote wave spot that never gets crowded.

Visitor Reviews of Highcliffe

Warren Wentworth from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

Just have to say, I've been down here a few times now, the surf is often messy and is inconsistent with tides changing quickly; you can be looking at nice, clean 3 footers on the way down to the beach and by the time you get there, 1ft mess. Although the surf is inconsistent and often messy, catch it on a good day with decent swell and a calm breeze you can be looking at lovely 5ft beauties with a 10 second spacing, even a couple of barrels out there! With a strong swell, I would definitely recommend.
