Froggies Beach

Froggies Beach aerial view

Froggies Beach is a small cove to the south of Snapper Rocks, a favourite spot for locals wanting to picnic or soak up the sun away from the crowds.


This beach is not patrolled. Swimming is not recommended. Instead, stroll around to the patrolled beach at Rainbow Bay for a dip. See our Beach map or download Beach patrol information(PDF, 1MB).


If you’re keen for a wave, the famous Superbank to the north or Duranbah Beach to the south are great for experienced surfers. Surfers should always assess conditions. If in doubt, don't paddle out. For more information, visit our Surfing page.

About Froggies Beach

A green frog painted on the rocks watches over the beach, while a boardwalk snakes its way around the sand and up to Point Danger headland. The headland provides a great vantage point for spotting whales during the colder months.

There are public toilets in Apex Park, above Froggies Beach, or up the hill at Point Danger. You’ll find tables, shade structures, barbecues and beach showers at nearby Rainbow Bay. The oceanway wraps around Froggies Beach, connecting Snapper Rocks to Point Danger.
