A breathtaking Australian beach renowned for its world-class surf is sometimes referred to as ‘paradise on earth’.

Cellito Beach, a three-hour drive north of Sydney on the north coast of NSW, is a spectacular sandbar that has long fascinated travelers with its crystal-clear white sand and sparkling turquoise water.

Overlooking the iconic Sugarloaf Lighthouse or Seal Rocks, the thin stretch of sand looks more like the tropical Caribbean than a coastal spot in regional Australia.

The beach is accessed by walking along an enchanting boardwalk under a canopy of cabbage palms, which ends with a small wooden platform that offers a beautiful view of the ocean below.

Visitors can also take 4WDs to the southern end of the beach next to Smiths Lake, which offers a variety of water sports and fishing.

Cellito also secured a place in the Australian country music hall of fame when it was chosen as the filming location for the video of Daryl Braithwaite’s classic hit, The Horses.

Australian photographer Mark Fitz, who was named Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020, said the beach is a great place to take pictures.

“Occasionally, the entrance between the lake and the ocean opens up and creates great photo opportunities,” he said.

Instagram photos of the beautiful scenery have sparked hundreds of astonished comments, with comments like “beautiful,” “wow,” and “what crazy colors.”

‘Paradise on earth! Would love to be there,” one woman wrote.
