Beach + Watersports

Beach + Watersports

Thirty-five kilometres of beaches, golden sands, rolling surf and warm sunny days all year round.

When you think of a holiday on the Tweed, you’ve got to be thinking about morning walks along uncrowded beaches, lazy days in the sun and splashing around in the surf. Adding to the Tweed’s endless summer appeal are all the waterways that offer safe swimming, especially for young children in crystal clear shallow waters.

As with anywhere in Australia, beach-goers are advised to swim only at patrolled areas between the red and yellow flags. Professional lifeguards patrol our most popular beaches along the Tweed coastline 7 days a week during the spring, summer and Easter school holidays, while our volunteer lifesavers patrol at selected beaches on weekends from October to April.

The Tweed’s beaches and waterways are not only beautiful to look at, they actual host an array of fun filled water activities, which include snorkelling, kayaking & canoeing, stand-up paddleboard, deep-sea & beach fishing, surfing and whale watching (June to November). For more info check out all the options below.
