Cellito Beach, also known as Sandbar Beach, offers great views towards Seal Rocks as well as challenging surfing.
The water is crystal clear and produces great left and right hand breaks. There's a five minute walk along the timber boardwalk through a beautiful remnant patch of coastal rain forest to remind you of how the area used to look like.
At the end of the boardwalk there's a viewing area to check out the breaks. Behind the sandbar is Smiths Lake which has great family friendly swimming options. The lake is occasionally opened to the ocean to refresh the lake waters.
This beach is not patrolled.
Dogs can be walked on leads only, at certain times in the morning and evening on Cellito Beach. Four-wheel drive access to the beach is via Sandbar Caravan Park.
