Storm Bay beaches

Surrounding Hobart’s outer-eastern suburbs there are some lovely sheltered beaches that are well worth a visit. The beaches facing south into Storm Bay are excellent surfing spots and usually uncrowded. Clifton Beach is a popular surfing location reached via a turn-off from the South Arm Highway, while a further 8 kilometres south the Goat Bluff cliff-top lookout offers spectacular views of wild and deserted surf beaches on either side of the bluff.

For a swim in the waves at a safe, patrolled beach, head to Carlton (take the turn-off to Dodges Ferry from the Arthur Highway, after Sorell).
