About Cabarita Beach
Cabarita Beach is located on the beautiful NSW Far North Coast, 20 minutes south of the Gold Coast/Tweed Heads border, 40 minutes from Byron Bay and 45 minutes to Mt Warning.
With large areas of protected wetlands and limited development, this creates a quiet, relaxed atmosphere in Cabarita. Bounded by Nature Reserve to the north and west and the Pacific Ocean to the east, this small coastal village with 3000 residents represents a unique lifestyle.
There is a new Skateboard Park, headland, Barbecue Park and Picnic areas and uninterrupted views over the ocean; whale-watching is a local pastime.
The beach is renowned for its surfing and hosts many carnivals during the year. An annual charity event held at Cabarita is The Greenback Tailor Fishing Competition which attracts hundreds of competitors from NSW and QLD. The village boasts the only beachside hotel in the Tweed Shire with both residents and visitors being able to eat and drink within a short distance of the main beach.
The town is serviced by a small shopping centre, with a Woolworths, fruit market, butcher, bakery and takeaway food with many restaurants, cafes, beachside hotel, bottle shop, bowls club surf and fishing supplies in the area.
