Small drive to car park which then is a short walk to the beach!

Drive south of grafton or north of coffs and turn into a place that has a sign called darlington caravan park you will have to park outside of the place so walk through the park for 5 min towards the beach.

 Additional Information

This spot is a fun surf. On good days it can get up to 4ft. On great days it can get to 7-8ft (maybe once every month or so) and believe me it is wicked then, especially for bodyboarders.

I don't really have any tips, there is now one ever out there so its not like you have to go and find your own peaks just surf it.

Atmosphere

Although this beach is located just a couple of kilometres from arrawarra beach, it is a totally different experience for surfers. It is especially good on weekends as the locals enjoy a good bright morning surf even if it is completely flat. Just the relaxation of the water will get you in a surfy mode as you know a wave big or small is bound to come in soon and that feeling is great. On good day maybe twice a week, it gets to 4ft(waves) with small barrels and overhead for surfers. This is a day trip and a half if you have the time to stay a couple of days. Good surfing to ya!!!

I think this is a sick surf break if your a kid meet the other kids that live their, there heaps friendly and will go for an early surf with you.
