Calm beach in the middle of town and a good jetty and breakwater to fish off.
Wide and sheltered beach. Great beginner surf spot. You can walk along the headland to the south. Lots of shady parking here and BBQs so you can park overnight and surf first thing in the morning.
Beautiful long beach and the breaks at the southern end are great for beginners. At the northern end there are waves for more experienced surfers. There are good markets here on the second Saturday of the month. The headland at the northern side has great views.
The most popular beach in town. The beach is patrolled. On weekends in summer expect to see plenty of bikinis.
Gorgeous beach just south of Coffs Harbour. A swim in the rockpool on the southern end is recommended. The surf is consistent here and there is a good vibe in general. Good surf club for a beer or coffee. The rockpool here is really nice.
Cross the shallow water of Bonville Creek estuary at the southern end of Sawtell Beach to get to this gorgeous beach in Bongil Bongil National Park. You can surf, swim and sunbathe here. If you drive in from further down the coast you can camp on the beach.
