Black Head Beach is a multi-award winning beach under the Keep Australia Beautiful Program. The beach is patrolled in the summer months and there's an excellent ocean pool, one of only three on the whole mid north coast (the others being nearby Forster Ocean Baths and much further afield at Sawtell near Coffs Harbour).
There are excellent beach fishing opportunities and a pretty picnic area with barbecues under the shade of Norfolk Island pines that line the entry to the beach. The lagoon that separates the sand dunes to the village centre is one of the many beautiful features of the littoral rainforest nature reserve at Black Head.
