Pelican Point is a popular windsurfing area in summer. It has extensive grassy rigging areas and easy launching into shallow near-shore waters, with showers, toilets and a mobile snack facility close by. Its shallow waters are ideal for learning high performance manoeuvres such as water starts and high speed gybes.
Keeping the birds happy
To a small bird, the shadow cast by a kite looks like a predator. Kite surfers and windsurfers should therefore avoid entering the waters surrounding Pelican Point, which are shown by in-water markers.
