Good for little kids – Cudmirrah Beach lagoon, Berrara Beach and lagoon, Swan Lake
Surf – The Reef at Cudmirrah beach, Berrara Beach, The Cove
Long walks with the dog – Cudmirrah beach – head north towards Sussex
Long walks without the dog – Berrara Beach south to Mermaids (nice and flat but go at low tide)
Fishermans Rock – walk west along the bush path from the playground at Berrara Creek to Fisherman’s Rock. A good steady walk with many varieties of flora and fauna.
Mermaids – a must do. Start at Berrara Lagoon (low tide is best so you can get across the lagoon) then walk south along level easy to walk on beach 1.5km until you reach a rock shelf and Mermaids Pool which is big enough to swim in. A great walk to do with the kids. Unfortunately no dogs allowed on this beach.
