At the beginning of the Nullarbor, west along the coast from Ceduna, is a string of surf beaches culminating in three legendary breaks at Cactus Beach, south of Penong. This part of the Australian coastline has a wild and austere beauty, the endless ocean pared back by the rocky, sandy line of land. The swell at Cactus is regularly 3 metres high, with left- and righthand breaks. The isolation means that only the most dedicated surfers come through here, as well as a small local crowd. Visitors often set up camp at Point Sinclair and linger for as many perfect waves as possible.
