Caves Beach is a locality in the Swansea Peninsula to the east of Lake Macquarie and the west of the South Pacific Ocean. It is so named because of the many caves on its coastline. While it has a surfing beach popular with local surfers, the beach towards the caves is relatively calm and kids love it.

The caves get submerged at high tide, so it would be prudent to always watch out for the water level. Some who would have walked on foot to the caves without getting wet may find themselves without an option but to go home with wet pants if they let the tide come in before they return.

If you are just after some nice scenery with the option for water play, the Caves Beach is the place to be. It is not very far from Sydney and definitely not as crowded as Sydney beaches. If you are going to visit, please remember to support local businesses.
