Miners Beach

Miners Beach - Australia
© Brian Tolagson

Backed by grassy bluffs, Miners Beach is a blend of large pebbles and fine light sand. An unofficial nudist beach on the Port Macquarie coastline, it can be reached via the steps leading down from Green Point car park. Its unofficial nature means that police crackdowns on naturist bathing sometimes takes place, although there’s rarely large numbers who congregate here.

Part of this reason is that the beach almost entirely disappears beneath the incoming waves at high tide. Surfing is possible, although the line up is a little on the rocky side. The constantly-changing nature of the waves have led the spot being called Seinfields by local boarders – because it’s only ever good for 30 minutes. Swimming should only be contemplated by those knowledgeable of the waters because of the risk of rip currents. 

Miners Beach has no showers or toilets, with the nearest located at Spooky Beach car park.
