Sawtell Beach

Sawtell is a beachside community with a wonderful variety of visitor attractions, including the main surf beach, which is home to the Sawtell Surf Club.

The headlands are popular for watching the migrating whales and taking in the incredible coastline views. At the southern end of Sawtell Beach you will find Sailors Bay, an area sheltered by a small island which can be reached at low tide. Here you will find a boat launching ramp, nearby parking, and tidal rock pools.

Sawtell boasts an abundance of cafes, boutique clothes shops, a variety of restaurants, reserves, barbecue facilities, showers, toilets, popular picnic areas, children's playgrounds and a variety of accommodation facilities all within close walking distance to the main beach.
