Surfing & Beaches

Whether you’re a surfer, in need of a gentle bay for the kids to splash in or just want to walk on the sand without seeing a soul, there’s a beach waiting here just for you.

Surfers travel from around the world to experience the breaks of Crescent Head Surfing Reserve. Grassy Head Beach has a right hander peeling off the point and a beach break further up the beach that shifts with the sand bar. Hat Head also boasts several mean breaks.

South West Rocks is lesser known for its surf but depending on swell direction and the location of sand bars, there are several breaks for the experienced surfer. Meanwhile, Horse Shoe Bay has gentle waves that are perfect to take a dip in and is popular with families. You’ll also find plenty of families at high tide at Hat Head Beach when the Korogoro Creek fills with water offering protected swimming.

With hundreds of kilometres of coastline, journeying a little further from the popular haunts will bring you to wide open sandy beaches you can have all to yourself.
