Coffs Coast Regional Park
Please note
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch or whale watch
  • Strong rips and currents may be present at this beach – take care in the water and please supervise children at all times
  • Dogs are not permitted on this beach, but there is an off-leash area a little further north around Corindi and Pipeclay Beaches
  • It can be a busy place on the weekend, so parking might be limited
  • A current NSW recreational fishing licence is required when fishing in all waters and you’ll need to take note of Solitary Islands Marine Park zonings.

A landscape photographer’s dream, Arrawarra Headland and offers incredible views over Solitary Islands Marine Park.

Swimmers and surfers will also love this beach, and it’s renowned for its fantastic point break so if you’ve brought your surfboard, give it a go. Fisherman can try their luck casting off from the beach.

If you feel like a little walk, take off for a rockpool ramble, look for ancient Aboriginal fish traps and sea creatures or walk over to Mullawarra Beach. You’ll also find a picnic area nestled in a tree-lined park.
