The Mid Coast Surfing Reserve shares its waters with other users such at wind and kite surfers on stormy days.
Snorkelling and scuba diving is popular especially on the Port Noarlunga Reef at the end of the jetty.
Canoes and Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boards can usually be seen from the cliff tops travelling the length of the reserve or up and down the Onkaparinga River.
Photographers are popular hoping to get a shot of the passing dolphins, seals, stingrays and the occasional Southern Right whale, or a shot of our amazing sunsets.
The Christies Beach Sailing Club is the only sailing club in the reserve and the fleet will often be seen heading out past Christies Reef at the northern end of the reserve.
Beach, rock and jetty fishing is popular along the length of the reserve with excellent boat launching facilities at O’Sullivans Beach just past the northern end of the reserve.
Numerous walkers and joggers utilise the pathways that run the length of the cliff tops along the reserve and provide stunning views all the way.
In the summer months Moana Beach, at the southern end of the reserve, is a very popular spot for beach gatherings. Uniquely, there is vehicle access to the beach on the southern side of the Moana Surf Life Saving Club rooms.
