Cabarita Beach is the best place to go if you’re looking for some quiet time at the beach but need some adventure now and then. This little town on the far northeast coast of New South Wales is perfect for healing and rejuvenation, thanks to its laid-back vibe and small-town charm.

When you’ve had enough of the beach and the summer sunshine, you can always head to the hinterland and explore its verdant landscape.

So, without further ado, let’s check out the different things you can do in and around Cabarita Beach.

Things to Do in Cabarita Beach

Stroll along the beach or ride the waves

Feel the silky sand under your feet as you stroll barefoot along the peaceful Cabarita Beach. Feel the cool wind and the sun’s warmth on your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed as you leave the hectic world behind.

After you take in the sight of the magnificent Pacific Ocean in front of you, take a dip into its pristine waters. Watch out because the water’s cold yet refreshing. But don’t worry because you always have the sun to keep you warm as you soak it all in on your beach towel.

If the conditions are suitable for surfing, then it’s time to bring out your surfboard or rent one from the Cabarita Surf Shop. You can rent one here.

You’re in for a treat if you stay at The Beach Cabarita. Our cosy Cabarita Beach hotel is right in front of the beach, so the sun turning the ocean sparkling gold is the first thing you see when you wake up.

You don’t have to drive or cycle to the beach or navigate a packed parking lot while staying at The Beach Cabarita. All you have to do is go down and take a stroll down to the water for a swim.

At night, you can sit on the balcony and sip some wine while you listen to the crashing waves beyond. 

Get a different view of Cabarita Beach by climbing Norries Headland

Cabarita Beach is beautiful, but you will surely get a different perspective when you view it from Norries Headland. If you fancy a long stroll in the early morning, you can walk from your Cabarita Beach accommodation to Norries Headland.

Check out Lions Park first, then climb to Norries Head. Standing on this headland will give you a breathtaking view of the entire Cabarita Beach and town and the neighbouring Maggies Beach.

Commune with Mother Nature at the Cudgen Nature Reserve

The far northeast portion of New South Wales isn’t just beach and surfing. If you want to explore the hinterland, check out the Cudgen Nature Reserve. It boasts over 400 hectares of protected land, including the famed Round Mountain and the pristine Cudgen Lake.

Locals and tourists flock to the area for a lovely weekend and holiday picnic. Bring a picnic blanket and some delicious food and spend a day on the grounds to while away the time. 

Cudgen Creek is particularly popular among visitors thanks to its crystal clear waters and wide picnic area. Go for a refreshing swim, or bring your standup paddleboard if you need some exercise. You can also hire a standup paddleboard from Watersports Guru if you don’t have one.

Go on a Kayak Adventure on Cudgen Creek

If standup paddleboarding is not your cup of tea, you can still kayak on Cudgen Creek.

You can rent one from Watersports Guru and then set off to discover verdant mangroves growing along the creek’s banks. You’ll also find the occasional birds, including egrets, cormorants, and herons.

If you still need guidance in kayaking Cudgen Creek, Watersports Guru offers a 90-minute kayak tour.

Chill out at the restaurants nearby

After a day spent swimming or kayaking, it’s time to relax at one of the restaurants near The Beach Cabarita.

Go to The Beach Bar whenever you need a sumptuous seafood feast and some drinks. It’s easy to find as we share the same building with The Beach Bar and it is on the ground floor. 

If you don’t want to go far from your hotel, check out Pandanus Cafe and Licensed Restaurant. It’s located beside The Beach Cabarita, so you can enjoy a hearty and tasty meal without venturing too far from your Cabarita Beach accommodation.

Pandanus serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant is open from 8 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon from Monday to Thursday and on Sunday. The restaurant is open until 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

There’s also the Izabu Japanese Food if you’re craving authentic yummy udon, tempura, and other Japanese favourites.
