The gorgeous beach curves 1.7km, with rocky headlands at each end and a rock pool at the southern end.

You can learn to surf with the Central Coast Surf Academy.


Next to the beach are cafes and restaurants, boutiques, accommodation and the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre, which began in 1948.


The delightful events calendar includes the Five Lands Walk, a walking and cultural festival in June that celebrates the passing of the winter solstice. The eponymous 9km trail includes Captain Cook Lookout, a vantage point for whale watching during the annual migration along the NSW coast.
