The Coffs Harbour coastline stretches over more than 60 kilometres featuring a total of 32 beaches from Bonville in the south to Red Rock in the north. Many of our beaches are ideal for surfing while others are more protected or patrolled and better suited for swimming, snorkeling or diving.
With the growing popularity of other sports, such as personal water craft (Jet Skis) and Kite Surfing, users should check local and state legislation to ensure that they may use the area intended. Users of these types of craft should also be mindful of other beach users regarding impact of noise, danger from craft themselves and in particular, their own safety.
