Sandbar Beach is a popular spot with fishermen, four wheel drivers and holiday makers alike. You can choose between the tranquil clear water of Smiths Lake on one side or the wild ocean beach on the other side.

The name ‘Sandbar’ refers to the sandy bar that forms across Smiths Lake which neighbours this beach. The beach faces east-southeast and receives waves averaging 1.5 m. This beach is unpatrolled and rips are likely. Take caution when swimming.

The southern end of the beach and lakeshore also forms the northern boundary of the Myall Lakes National Park.

4WD access to the beach is located at Bushlands and Sandbar Caravan Park. A MidCoast Council Beach Permit is required to drive on this beach.
