Copacabana is a well-loved popular surfing and swimming beach. It’s a small village away from noise and traffic, it’s also one of the most relaxing holiday spots on the Central Coast. South of Avoca Beach, and connected to MacMasters Beach in the south, Copacabana Beach represents the essence of Central Coast Life.
An early morning walk from Copacabana to MacMasters Beach is the perfect way to begin your day, or make it an afternoon stroll, a relaxing way to end your day! Copacabana features an ocean rock pool at the north end of the beach, perfect for family fun, splashing about in and for young children.
Be sure to visit Captain Cook Lookout for great views of the ocean, drive along Del Monte Place to the top of the hill, and follow the directions to the Lookout. If it’s not too hot, why not enjoy a picnic and soak in the fresh coastal air and amazing ocean view..
Copacabana features a whale viewing platform where keen observers can spy Humpback Whales on their migratory routes between June-July and October-November. The whales come quite close to the coastline due to the northerly currents at this time of year. For a better view, don’t forget your binoculars!
Copacabana has quality Cafes and takeaways on Del Monte Place, the shopping strip has a friendly beachside vibe. Behind the shopping strip, families will appreciate the Shaun Brinklow Playground with slides and slippery dips to keep the young ones entertained, whilst keen skaters and onlookers will enjoy the skate park.
Those who are keen to fish will enjoy the beach fishing as well as the rock fishing off the headland where there is a generous bounty of bream and tailor. Alternatively be there early for when the lagoon joins the ocean as there are good gutters around.
Cochrane Lagoon is a peaceful off leash “dog friendly” area between MacMasters and Copacabana Beaches where owners can let their dogs run around in the sand.

Copacabana is a patrolled beach, always swim between the red and yellow flags, surf lifesavers have identified this area as the safest spot to swim in the water.
