Nice part of the coastline. Great esplanade and plenty of places to have a good meal. Safe, easy to access beach and maybe good fishing. Definitely worth a visit.

Very easy diving. Great for beginner's or visitors to the area. Great corals and marine life. Worth a look.

Great protected swimming area. Perfect place on a hot day to take a tube and just float around for a few hours. We visited on a stinker and noticed it does get very busy though so don't expect to have the place to yourself.

This is a lovely spot ideal for young children and older ones alike. Surfing smaller waves are safe and snorkeling secluded calmer ponds gives the chance to see lots of colorful fish. A bit rocky with the volcanic rocks in places but an ideal destination

This is another excellent area to visit when visiting Bargara. You can see evidence of the volcanic past of the area. Good to visit at low tide and look into the rock holes.

We came here to go scuba diving, and were reasonably happy with what this dive site has to offer. It is easily accessed from the shoreline/rocks. The visibility was not that great on the day we went, but this was due to weather and tides...More

Fantastic holiday. Lovely coast line. Must do is the bike ride from Bargara to Burnett Heads, through the turtle rookery. Great coastal / rural scenery and good coffe, smoothies and milk shakes at Bargara Surf Club on the way back. 26km 2 hour return trip...More

Excellent place for nature lovers and diving/snorkeling. Location on here is incorrect so google the correct location at Innes Park/Coral Cove.

Went with friends a couple of times as it was the only snorkeling spot I could find while we were staying in the area. On first sight my heart sank; I was trying to teach snorkeling to an inexperienced person and those rocks filled me...More
