The windswept beach at Castlepoint is the perfect place to relax and clear your head. This sandy beach is part of a long, rugged coastline, broken up by rocky headlands. Castle Rock is magnificent and towers 162m high at the end of the beach. On top stands the lighthouse, overlooking the tumbling Pacific Ocean. It was built in 1913 and makes for a great coastal photo.

There is plenty to enjoy at Castlepoint.  A walk across the reef to the lighthouse is the perfect way to enjoy the scenery; there is also a longer walk to a limestone cave. Other activities in the area are horse riding, walking, jetboating, surfing, swimming, canoeing and fishing.  If you're keen for a round of golf, the local 9-hole course has amazing coastal views.
