About Hunting Island

This pristine beach is rapidly disappearing as the ocean is now making it into the sub-tropical forest at high tide. Either side of high tide, walled up peaks will appear, offering occasional barrels when it’s offshore. The area in front of the lighthouse, which had to be moved due to the erosion, is generally best.

Beware strong currents at either end of the island, also many underwater tree stumps and the odd floating palm tree in the line-up. Even if it’s flat, Hunting Island State Park is worth checking out. Full facilities include a good campsite.
