If you love walking along wild and untamed beaches, then Bongil Beach in Bongil Bongil National Park is the place to be. Nestled between Bongil picnic area in the north and Bundagen Headland to the south, it's ideal for nature-lovers who want a remote nature experience and enjoy some birdwatching.
South of Coffs Harbour near Sawtell, you’ll have to walk in to Bongil Beach. You might see seasoned surfers, and it's a popular spot with the locals for beach fishing. But with 7km of golden sand and unspoilt coastline to go around, you won't feel crowded in.
Keep your eye on the waves, as you might see dolphins and, on shore along the dunes, the bright pink flowers of the succulent pigface are sure to catch your attention. Look out for shorebirds such as little terns, red-capped plover and pied oystercatchers scurrying across the sand.
