Little Beach on the East Coast is an exposed beach and reef break that has unreliable waves. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the west with some shelter here from north winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the east. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and there are also left and right hand reef breaks on offer.. Best around mid tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of rips and rocks.
