Boambee Beach extends from Corambirra Point (near the Deep Sea Fishing Club) to Boambee Creek (north of Sawtell). The beach is not patrolled though popular with fishermen, horse trainers, joggers, jet-ski riders, four wheel drive enthusiasts, and dogs are allowed on the beach off the leash. Boambee Creek Reserve, at the southern end of Boambee beach, (access via Sawtell Road), is a popular area for locals with younger children. The reserve offers shallow water for smaller children and playground facilities. It is perfect for picnics as there are barbeques, shelters and takeaway food. The reserve also has beach showers and toilet facilities. The reserve charges a nominal fee for car parking in the reserve. Boambee Headland is also the perfect location for whale watching during winter and spring.
Unspoilt beaches, littoral rainforest and fascinating estuaries offer an ideal setting for family activities. Canoeing is the best way to explore Bonville and Pine Creeks, from the Sawtell boat ramp. Alternatively, you can enjoy an easy walk from Tuckers Rocks. Nearby Sawtell offers accommodation and camping in a bush setting, at Sawtell Reserve. Bongil Bongil National Park is located ten kilometres south of Coffs Harbour, from Sawtell or via Tuckers Rock Road (unsealed) from Repton, Overhead Bridge Road (unsealed), or Lyons Road off the Pacific Highway.
