Arrawarra Beach

Arrawarra Beach

New South Wales, Coffs Coast

The sheltered, north facing Arrawarra beach offers excellent shelter from big swells and a broad, gradually sloping sandbar where you'll find soft, spilling waves breaking with few crowds, making this is an awesome spot for learning to surf.

Wave Type
Apart from on big north swells, Arrawarra offers small waves that break gently over the flat sandbar, perfect for catching whitewater waves and for those wanting to practice catching green waves (it does close out here at times). The beach here is so flat, and the sandbar so broad, that practising surfing in the whitewater is possible during all tides.

Head further north up to Darlington Beach for bigger waves and longer walls for turning across the wave face when the surf is tiny around the south end of the beach.

During strong south winds and swells, this is one of the best surf spots along this coastline for beginners and kids.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South East to North West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small to medium North East swells around to big East to South swells.

- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine life

Have fun surfing Arrawarra Beach by practicing surfing etiquette and surf safety.

The car park is located at the southern end of the beach (take the Mullaway turn off from the highway, then turn left at Arrawarra road which leads to the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled during the summer school holidays (mid December to end of January) - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located next to the car park in the south corner of the beach.

Closest Shops
No shops exist at Arrawarra, with the best place to head for cafes and take away food shops is Woolgoolga, where there are also waves for learning to surf.
