Coffs Harbour surfing locations

Emerald Beach

  • South end of Emerald Beach you can sometimes find a long left if the sandbanks are in the right place. Works best on north-easterly to south-easterly swells from 0.5 to 2m, and north-westerly winds.

Moonee Creek

  • Just near where Moonee Creek enters the sea, often you can find a decent beach break. The best conditions for surfing are in south-easterly swells and south-westerly to north-westerly winds. The break is best when it is around 0.5 to 1.5m (doesn't handle larger swells very well).

Diggers

  • Just north of Macauleys, this is one of Coffs Harbour's most crowded beaches. It can get some good beach breaks if the sandbanks are in the right places. It works best in south-easterly swells up to 3m and south-westerly winds.

Macauleys Beach

  • Macauleys Beach can work in virtually any type of swell (particularly easterly to southerly). Big swells can sometimes produce a left from the outside point all the way down the beach.

Park Beach

Coffs Harbour Northern Breakwall

  • North of the main port of Coffs Harbour you will find the northern breakwall. At the end of the breakwall in big south to south-easterly swells there can sometimes be a stomach dropping right hander. This is definitely an experienced surfer only wave.

Gallows

  • Another spot for the experienced surfer only. This can produce an excellent left reef point break. It needs a big south-easterly swell (best between 1.5 to 3m) and north to north-westerly wind. Often best in the winter months.

Trapdoors

  • This is a long right point break for the experienced surfer only. Works best in south-westerly winds and handles huge southerly swells up to 5m.

Sawtell Beach & The Island

  • There is a fairly consistent beach break here. Best in north-easterly to south-easterly swells. The Island at the southern end of the beach can produce fast long rights, but is not very consistent, unless the sand banks are formed right. Best in large south-easterly swells.
