This beach would be ideal for a range of people, surfers, fishing or just relaxing treading a book. there is a river outlet which would be ideal for fishing, especially Flathead, an ideal beach for children to play & have a swim.

Very windy, the jetty is not as accessible as you would hope. Worth the drive around and the fish and chips are OK.

The sea was rather calm and therefore very suitable for young children. The beach was very clean as well

Wow what a fabulous part of the world. Coffs Harbour is about a 6 hour drive north of Sydney or about a 90 minute flight from Sydney Airport. The beaches are stunning with white sand and warm blue water. Plenty of hotels & holiday apartments...More

One of the highlights on our trip from Sydney to Brisbane & worth spending a few days to explore. Port Macquarie was another great place to stop.

Wonderful place for us to visit every afternoon as after all days of outing. Loved coming here to unwind. Excellent for walking running and swimming or just for a nice stroll. Highly recommend to all while visiting the area..

It's a beautiful area. There's a wharf with amazing ice cream. There's a long jetty walk, which is a delight and there's also mutton bird island. This is a diverse area. We loved it.

Decent beach and a number of facilities. Sheltered as well. A bit of a hike from the town centre however.

Known as Park Beach, the main beach in Coffs Harbour is a beautiful stretch of golden sand. There is a fairly dangerous section found at the back of the Hoey Moey Hotel, the rip can be a bit tricky there at times and no Lifesavers...More
