Safety Beach

Safety beach is 1.2km long and has a peaceful atmosphere for all to enjoy. This beach is classed as a family friendly beach, however, this beach is not patrolled and is dominant for its strong rips.

It is advised for families to swim at a calmer beach like Woolgoolga main beach which is also patrolled. Safety beach does not have any facilities such as toilets, showers, bbq, picnic area or drinking water. When taking a stroll around Safety beach you will come across Darken creek, this is a wonderful spot for the children to have a play and a chance to get onto the canoes and kayaks. This creek will take you all the way down to Mullaway and is around 1km.

This beach can be accessed from the northern or southern side of the headland. There is parking, but on the southern side it is limited. This beach is not ideal for fishing in strong winds, but lots of fisherman catch some good bites here.

Surfing is favorable but the breaks are best in the most exposed sections, so precaution needs to be taken. In low tide why not take a 1km paddle out to Woolgoolga reef lagoon. In the lagoon there are natural pools and do not forget to bring your snorkel as there are lots of marine life waiting to be observed. If you do embark on this journey, just make sure you take precautions and check the times for high and low tide to ensure you do not get stranded on the reef.

Safety beach has lots of lovely accommodation for people to stay such as Ocean bungalows and Seabreeze safety beach B&B. Safety beach is also only a short drive to the golf course where you can rent some buggies or walk around the course. But watch out, there is no doubt your have some friends on the course with you, watch out for the kangaroos.
