Eagle Point Foreshore (Victoria, Australia)
Windsurfing at Eagle Point Foreshore
This is a great spot for windsurfers of all levels in breezes from N to E. SE works if the wind is strong enough to make its way over the protruding spit to the East.
This spot is not suitable for kiters as there is no open areas for rigging and launching however the Silt Jetties are just across the lake only a couple of kilometres away which is an ideal kitesurfing spot.
The water is slightly salty, on the warmer side and a bit brackish and the bottom mostly firm sand with a few muddy spots but it is pretty clean.
Because the lake is relatively shallow and the fetch not too great in this area, the chop is fairly small however this also means the wind can be a little gusty.
Whilst the water is relatively shallow it gets to over a metre pretty quickly so it would also be a great spot for foiling. There are a few sand bars lurking below so just keep your eye out for them.
Please be aware of the 5km speed limit as you approach the shore which is a swimming beach.
There is a free parking area along the foreshore with some nice big gum trees to perch under and grassy area for rigging.
The foreshore area also has a sheltered BBQ area, public toilets, picnic tables and kids playground.
If you have a dog, they are not allowed on the beach area from November to March however there is an adjoining strip of foreshore that does allow dogs during this time.
Where to Stay
There are 2 camping areas nearby:
The Lake King Waterfront Caravan Park is ideal as it has direct access to the lake. You can leave your sails rigged and head out when the wind blows. We stayed here and really enjoyed it. They also allow dogs in the park in the camping area as long as they are tethered.
The other option is the Eagle Point Caravan Park which is set just a little bit back from the lake front but still just a walk across a small quiet road to the lake. This is a council park operated by East Gippsland Shire and the park also allows dogs on leads.
Outside of these holiday and camping parks there are a few bed and breakfasts in the area with more options in Paynesville which is just 5ks up the road.
Food & Nightlife
Eagle Point doesn’t have a village or even a general store so if you are looking to walk to the pub or a restaurant for dinner you would be better off staying in Paynesville.POTENTIAL HAZARDS:
There aren't any apparent hazards at this spot apart from the shoreline when it gets shallow. When sailing across to the Sit Jetties there is a sandbar which stretches across parallel to the show so just be aware of that at low tide particularly foilers.
