The changing face of Charlesworth Bay
Charlesworth Bay has been one of my long time favourite beaches, so I visit this beach every time I am in Coffs Harbour. I am always fascinated by the changes I see each time. Of course it is Mother Nature doing what she does naturally.
It is a small beach which has a relatively protected north east facing aspect and is only about 500 m in length.
Charlesworth Bay is rarely busy as most people would not know it exists. To access it, there is a beautiful tree canopied avenue leading down to the park and the beach.
There are picnic areas with free bbqs and facilities including outdoor showers. Often there are RV’s staying there overnight and although that is not permitted I am sure if they are quiet and respect the area no one bothers them. It is a perfect spot to stay over night as it is not far off the hwy, and yet so quiet and secluded.
It is a dog friendly beach however dogs must be kept on a leash. Consequently, you often see mostly locals there with their dogs
For swimming there is a section of the beach that has a small surf, good for body surfing or body boards although you will see the occasional surf board. There is anther small beach up the southern end by the “fisherman’s hut” which is quite private and easy to swim in. And, there are also the beautiful rock pools which are forever changing with the tides and weather.
If you are ever in the area, pop in, you will be pleased that you did
To all of my ‘Travelling with Lyn’ blog friends, I wish you a happy and safe Christmas and a wonderful 2014
