A Sleepy Little Fishing Village On The Far North Coast

Fingal Head is a coastal fishing village on the Tweed Coast, near Tweed Heads. Prized by locals and holiday makers alike for its quiet solitude and beautiful beaches, this sleepy fishing village is the ideal holiday for those looking to avoid the crowds and tourist traps of other nearby beaches. For those who want to take a day trip into or out of the city, Brisbane is an easy drive, just over an hour away.

Fingal Head Accommodation

Like most Tweed Coast accommodation, Fingal Head holiday rentals all focus on the beach. Most properties in Fingal Head are either located on or facing the beach with stunning waterfront views. Outdoor showers are also common, perfect for washing off the salt and sand of Fingal Head's shores. Fingal Head rentals tend to be larger than those at other cities or beaches and often offer more seclusion for neighbours, perfect for holiday makers looking to truly "get away" on their holiday getaway.

The Historic Fingal Lighthouse

Most notable of the Fingal Head attractions is the iconic Fingal Lighthouse, built in 1872. The lighthouse is still in operation today with a range of eight nautical miles. The building is the oldest public building in Tweed Shire. Travellers can reach the lighthouse by taking a short walk through some of Fingal Head's rainforest.

Minutes To Tweed Heads

Another benefit of staying at Fingal Heads is that you're just a mere 15 minutes and 12 kilometres away from Tweed Heads, a popular beach holiday destination. Fingal Head does host a surfing competition every year for indigenous surfers, but most surfers staying in Fingal head on over to Duranbah Beach in Tweed Heads to ride the waves. Head up to Point Danger, which overlooks Duranbah, to learn the history of the Tweeds or to watch dolphins jumping in the waves below. If you fancy a game of golf, book a tee-off time with Coolangatta Tweed Heads Golf.

To see the region in style, take a cruise down the Tweed River, which also runs through Fingal Head. Alternatively, you could hop on a whale-watching cruise in Coolangatta. If you'd rather bring home some fresh seafood, head out on the popular "Catch a Crab" tour to see local oysters, hand-feed friendly pelicans, and, of course, bring home tasty live crabs for dinner. 

The Best Thing To Do In Fingal Head...

...may just be to do nothing at all. Take a nap in the hammock. Read a good book by the ocean. Soak up the sun on the sand. Whatever you choose to do in Fingal Head, it's sure to be one of the most relaxing beach holidays you'll ever have.

With my work environment, this is a place where I can have peace, without the hussle and bussle of the city. I will definitely be back on a regular basis for sure. I home away from home. Thank you for having me and the warm friendly welcome. There is absolutely no negative things I can say about this cottage.
