Aragunnu Bay Beach

The perfect escape for this summer
Nestled in one of the most spectacular National Parks of New South Wales lays Aragunnu Bay Beach, with its beautiful golden stretch of sand.



Aragunnu Bay Beach can be found in the Mimosa Rocks National Park which is approximately 329km southwest of Sydney and is located between Ulladulla and Merimbula and is near Tathra in the breathtaking Sapphire Coast region.

The beach is the most accessible beach on the northern part of Mimosa Rocks National Park and here you are welcomed with rocks and a series of reefs and sea stacks that were composed of 350 million year old resilient rhyolite, making this beach even more interesting!



There is a reef that can be located around seven hundred metres east of the beach, you do need to take caution here as there are rips that tend to dominate the surf and it is an unpatrolled beach. However sunbathing and simply relaxing on the sand is a must do, as this beach tends to be isolated almost all year round!



If you love hitting the surf then Aragunnu Bay Beach is one you must visit, especially in summer when the beach breaks under low to moderate swell.

Fishing can be enjoyed here too with usually good gutters against the rocks as well as rocky gullies around the northern rocks, making it an enjoyable fishing spot.

It is certainly worth the drive for a weekend escape or road trip!

There are campsites nearby that include BBQ's and non-flush toilets.
