The closest beach to Dunbogan Caravan Park is Dunbogan beach, approximately 9.3km in length running between Camden Head and Diamond Head. Dunbogan Beach is great for walks and you can take your dog unleashed from the Sea view beach access point south to the Beach Street access point or leashed from the southern boundary of Kattang Nature Reserve to the Sea view Avenue beach access point.
There are a variety of breaks along the beach for surfers with waves around Camden Head offering some protection from northerly winds. The waves tend to be smaller around Diamond Head but can pick up during more Easterly and South-Easterly swells.
If you are after a swim, Dunbogan Beach is not patrolled, so drive south to Crowdy Head for a swim between the red and yellow flags, and smaller safer waves too.
Further afield around Camden Head you have Pilot Beach and Pebbly Beach whilst on the northern side of the river there is Grants Beach and Rainbow Beach at Bonny Hills.
