You will find Lighthouse Beach south of Port Macquarie. A perfect beach for ideal surfing, long walks, taking a camel safari ride, beach fishing and 4WD access at the southern end. The beach is patrolled during the School Holidays (northern end, near the surf club and cafe). COAST cafe is also open for breakfast and lunch with some yummy food and refreshments.
Visit the historic Tacking Point Lighthouse which was built in 1879 which is the final stop along the scenic coastal walk, enjoy the viewing platform for a stunning view along the coastline, it is also a great vantage point for whale watching from May to November.
TIP: The best waves for surfing can be found at the more sheltered northern end, best on a northeast swell and northeast breeze.
