Beaches and Surfing at Grassy Head Beach
Located directly opposite the Grassy Head Holiday Park. Grassy Head Beach is an excellent surfing beach with a great right hander peeling off the point and a beach break further up the beach that shifts as the sand bar forms and reforms. Grassy Head Beach is also suited to snorkelling on calmer days where you can slowly work your way around the rocks observing the scores of fish that inhabit the area. If sunbaking and swimming is more your thing then make your way to the protected corners of the beach at either end for a refreshing dip. On some days you can be lucky enough to score the beach all to yourself, others you have to share paradise with the friendly locals that are more than happy to reveal to you why they call Grassy Head home.
