The rivermouth at sunrise

Pambula Beach is blessed with three beaches. To the north, 400 m from the house is the surf club beach. It has a gradual drop off and the beach break works best at low tide. It is patrolled in peak times and is very safe.

The caravan park beach looking north to Merimbula – you can walk 7kms along the sand.


Directly below the house is the Lions’ beach, named after the Lions club that built the Jiguma walking track that runs along it and out to the points. Lions beach is dog friendly and has far, far less people than the caravan park/surf club beach. It also faces east. The beach break is augmented by the break on the river bar which is a right hander and works perfectly at low tide with no wind. However, it is surfable almost every day, and kids can have a lot of fun in the slop on their boogie boards.

Walking further south around the point you’ll find the river mouth, the jewel in the crown for families and those who like a morning walk. There is parking at the bottom of Coraki, and a 500m walk up the sand with views over the national park which protects both banks of the Pambula River.   The water here is superheated when it is shallow on a slack tide, and tiny little waves usually come around the corner to delight small kids. There is even some shade from majestic old gum trees on this beach.
