Caves in Nullarbor is an exposed reef break that has consistent surf. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. A reef breaks right. Rarely crowded here. Hazards include rocks, sharks and isolation.
