Cresswell Beach

Cresswell beach spans either side of the village on the south part of Druridge Bay. To the north, you have a large sandy beach backed by large areas of sand dunes. To the south, the beach is backed by a caravan park and the headland at low tide exposes some rocks giving some rock pooling opportunities.

The shallow beach makes it good for swimming and the surfing has an exposed beach break and also popular for sailing and fishing.

Facilities at the beach include parking amongst the sand dunes just outside the village to the north. The south beach has a smaller car parking area alongside the road. The village has a small amount of parking and an ice-cream shop.
