Kitesurf Spot - Urangan Pier
Beach is clean and free of junk. Virtually no shells/rocks. On lower tides there's miles of room to launch and land. On the highest tides, there's no room at all. That's when you go around the corner to Neptunes Aquarium beach. At the pier, there is a sand bar a couple of hundred metres (not sure exactly how far) offshore, which is exposed when the tide is lower. Normally (on a SE) you kite from the beach to the bar and back again. There is an emergency ladder on the pier which is accessible from this sand bar if required (broken kite or line etc).
