Caves Beach, NSW

Caves Beach, NSW

The beaches of the Lake Macquarie region are unbeatable, and Caves Beach is one of Australia’s secret gems. Quiet stretches of white sand and blue ocean, sometimes with barely another soul in sight – what more could you ask for when looking to elope on the beach in NSW.

Our Caves Beach location is perfect for anyone wanting a really relaxed wedding in a beautiful, peaceful location.  With some of the most stunning beaches in NSW, Lake Macquarie locals will be able to continue to enjoy their ceremony location on anniversaries (or just whenever) for years to come. Anyone considering eloping to the Central Coast / Lake Macquarie area will have the most magical and relaxed experience here.

Location highlights: This is an insta-worthy location for your wedding, with white sand and a very back-to-nature vibe.  But you’d already know that if you’re a local. There’s no need to travel anywhere else for a beautiful wedding when you live on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. And, bonus for pet owners, this is a dog friendly beach, so you can bring your fur babies if you want to.

Local features:  At low tide you will love the photos you can get in the caves at the southern end of the beach. These ancient stone formations by the sparkling sea   create a breathtaking coastal paradise unlike any other. Easy parking, close to popular reception venues and more casual dining options. If you are eloping here, the neighbouring Caves Beach resort is a lovely place to spend your honeymoon.

Important things to note:  There is very little shade here, so in mid-summer we recommend early morning or late evening ceremony times.  In certain places on the beach phone reception is very patchy, so it isn’t ideal if you wish to video call family for your ceremony. If you want to avoid the sand, we can hold the ceremony on a grassy area overlooking the beach. Just let your celebrant know.

Accessibility: It is tricky to access the beach, so not suitable for mobility impaired guests or couples. If you are happy to have the ceremony on the grass overlooking the beach there is level access to an area we can use- note that the path is unpaved (a mix of grass/ dirt/ sand). We have had wheelchair users navigate this path easily before, but it might not be suitable for everyone.
