Palm Beach to Whale Beach oceanswim

Stock Photography By Jackie Bourn

The Palm Beach to Whale beach swim is an iconic ocean swim set in stunning surrounds. Swimmers battle the swell at Palm beach and then swim a 2.7km course to the next bay, Whale beach. There are nearly always shore dumpers at Whale beach so the skill is to avoid them and body surf into the finish line.
