Whatever the weather, there is likely to be a beach for both wild riders and cautious paddlers. Board riders love Main Beach and Frenchmans on SW-S and W winds and Cylinder and Deadmans on SE and S winds respectively. Lifeguards patrol year round at Cylinder and Main. Amity is an ideal spot for launching boats and casting straight into deep water from the beach. Beach driving is permitted only on Main and Flinders Beaches subject to tides and permits are required. Dogs are allowed off leash on Home Beach and parts of Flinders Beach.
