Please note
Diggers Beach joins Little Diggers Beach, an unofficial nude bathing beach.

The ever-popular Diggers Beach is perfectly located for tourists – right across the road from Coffs Harbour’s Big Banana. Wide and sheltered, Diggers makes for a lovely wind-free beach walk.

It’s not only visitors who love this beach either; it’s a favourite among locals for surfing, fishing and swimming. There’s plenty to do if you’d rather stay dry; take a seat at the elevated pavilion to admire the view and look at the birds, or you can walk the short pathway to Macauleys Headland.

When you’ve had enough of the surf, take a break from the beach in the neighbouring Diggers Beach picnic area. Featuring a children’s playground and plenty of space to run around, it’s ideal for a family barbecue
