Park Beach – Coffs Harbour

Park Beach

New South Wales, Coffs Coast


The waves at Park Beach vary greatly between the northern and southern end of the beach and on any given day. Generally, the area around the surf club (just north of Little Muttonbird Island) is the best spot along the beach for learning to surf with big rips and gutters often forming to the north of the surf club.

Wave Type
Some good sandbars can be found on either side of the island located just offshore and there is often a flat, attached sandbar for catching whitewater waves on the southern side of the creek entrance towards the marina. Beginner surfers should look for a safe sandbar that is attached to the beach before entering the water, as there are often some deep channels and rips here. Also avoid the back wash and cross waves that often break between the island and the beach.

Check out the beaches to the north if the surf is flat here and when the wind is up from the north east. Jetty Beach, Woolgoolga or Arrawarra can be good options if the waves are too big here.

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

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

Hazards
- Rocks
- Rip currents
- Backwash and cross waves around the island.
- Marine life
