Emerald Beach

Positioned near Look-at-me-now Headland, 20 kilometres from Coffs Harbour, Emerald Beach is a local surfing hotspot. Visit also for fishing or swimming, or for barbecues in the picnic area.

Emerald Beach is a great destination for a family holiday; just south of Woolgoolga and about 15 minutes north of Coffs Harbour.

It’s a quieter atmosphere than some of the other beaches along the Coffs Coast, as well as being a safe option for swimming. When the little ones are finished swimming, you can take them on a beach walk around to Look At Me Now Headland or head to the playground in the park behind the beach.

Emerald Beach caters for surfers too, boasting an excellent beach break, along with a southern left-hand reef break.

You'll find Saltwater Cafe and Restaurant just behind the beach. You can enjoy a meal while taking in spectacular coastal views or pick up a coffee to take on your way.
