Tourists flock to the best beaches
SUNNY, warm weather greeted hundreds as they flocked to Coffs Coast beaches yesterday.
And the first dry Easter in years brought many former locals back home to the region.
Sarajane Dubb came home to Sawtell from Sydney for the Easter break and spent yesterday surfing and building sandcastles on Sawtell Beach.
“I like coming back to the memories,” Mrs Dubb told The Coffs Coast Advocate.
She also likes coming back to enjoy the best beaches.
Co-owner of Treats Kiosk van Don Hunt said it was a very busy weekend.
“There were lots of people from out of town,” he said.
Molly and Jack Virieux from Coffs Harbour enjoyed the sun at Jetty Beach with their mum, Nicole.
“We’re down here every weekend at the moment,” Mrs Virieux said.
Five-year-old Jack is looking forward to spending some of his school holidays at the beach. The youngster can’t wait to catch some waves on his body board while his little sister creates artful masterpieces in the sand.
THE weather forecast for the remainder of the school holidays looks mixed.
There is a slight possibility of rain late on Thursday but the rest of the week looks dry.
However, heavy rain is forecast next Sunday with temperatures holding firm in the mid-20s.
