Copacabana is another popular beach with the locals, but less known with holidaymakers. With a beautiful beach, magnificent coastal views and a relaxed atmosphere, it is easy to see why locals would like to keep this part of the coast a secret.
One of the main attractions of Copacabana is its pet-friendly beach, which allows dogs to be exercised off-leash between 4pm and 8am daily. This makes it a popular destination for tourists travelling with pets. The beach is also perfect for swimming and surfing and has a rockpool for the little ones.
From April to November, humpback whales can be seen frolicking just offshore as they migrate to and from warmer waters. Head to the whale watch platform or to Captain Cook Lookout to watch the whales play and enjoy the view that stretches all the way to Palm Beach Lighthouse. Copacabana is only a short drive to Bouddi National Park where you can enjoy beautiful coastal walks, lookouts and picnic spots.
