Jetty Beach – Coffs Harbour

Jetty Beach

New South Wales, Coffs Coast

On really big swells, the very sheltered Jetty Beach is normally the safest surfing option for beginners and kids in the Coffs Harbour region. Many local surfers learnt to surf in the northern corner of this beach as young kids and today, when the waves are tiny, kids still rule the mini waves that break at this spot between the marina and the jetty.

Wave Type
Spilling close out waves break along the entire beach and roll gently to the shore over a flat sandbar when the waves are small. A small left often breaks in the northern corner, epic for teaching kids to turn along the wave face. The waves do dump here on low tide when the surf is big - avoid the rip against the breakwall when the waves are big. Good protection from summer nor-easterlies winds can also be found in the northern corner.

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

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Big North East to small East to medium sized South swells.

- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine life

Have fun surfing Coffs Harbour by practicing surfing etiquette and surf safety.

The car park is located at the northern end of the beach behind the marina.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Jetty Beach is not patrolled. The closest patrolled beach is Park Beach to the north - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

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

Located at the marina.

Closest Shops
After dominating the waves, kids will also rule the hot chips and ice creams for sale just metres away at the marina where a wide variety of food for big kids is also offered at the various cafés, restaurants and take aways. The CBD of Coffs Harbour is home to more services.
