Woolgoolga Beach

Woolgoolga Beach

New South Wales, Coffs Coast

Woolgoolga Beach is another safe southern corner and popular beach amongst swimmers and beginner surfers, especially during school holiday periods. Due to its close proximity to the Pacific Highway, this is a good spot for a quick swim or surf and for a bite to eat to break up the drive if you are heading further along the coast, and it's also a great place to relax for a few days.

Wave Type
Short rides can be found at the southern end of the beach where the waves often close out. Like Arrawarra, the southern corner of Woolgoolga Beach is a good spot for beginner surfers to check when looking for shelter from moderate southerly swells and strong south winds. 200 metres up the beach the rides are often longer and offer better shape for catching green waves and turning. Avoid the rip that forms against the rocks in the southern corner.

North swells aside, you'll often find bigger waves if you walk up the beach. If the surf is too big here, head up to Arrawarra Beach, which is normally a safer and easier surfing option in bigger waves.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South to North West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves

The southern corner offers shelter from south winds and swells but care should be taken to avoid the deep water rip current that flows beside the headland at times.
