About Copacabana

Casa da Praia is situated at Copacabana on the Central Coast of New South Wales,  just a 90 minute drive north of Sydney.   Click here for a location map.

Copacabana Beach

Copacabana is a pleasant coastal community.  The crescent beach of golden sands is patrolled by lifeguards over the warmer months from October to Easter.  At either end of the beach, there are tidepools to explore and rocks to clamber over.

A small cluster of shops offer basic requirements including: general store, newsagent, bakery, video store, two cafes, two beauty salons, a wineshop/bottleshop and a modest restaurant. Quality local seafood and produce is available from small providores in the area. A large shopping centre, with chain stores, is 20 minutes drive away.

Cochrane Lagoon is half way along the beach, nestled between Copacabana and MacMasters Beach. The lagoon is home to black swans, ducks, herons, the occasional pelican and other water birds.
