Emerald Beach is just south of Woolgoolga and about 15 minutes north of Coffs Harbour. It’s a quieter atmosphere than some of the other beaches along the Coffs Coast. The beach is safe for swimmers, or walk around the Look At Me Now Headland loop, spotting some kangaroos along the way.
Emerald Beach is very popular for surfers too, boasting an excellent beach break, along with a southern left-hand reef break. You can even walk your dog on a lead north of Fiddamans Creek and south of Diggers Head.
