Fingal was named by early explorers for its likeness with an outcrop of the same name in Scotland, the UNESCO Giant’s Causeway World Heritage Site. The Tweed’s very own Giant’s Causeway at Fingal Head is a must-see and was formed by hot lava flows which formed massive rock pillars as they reached the cool sea. In tranquil Fingal, you’ll also find fun surf breaks, laid-back fishing spots, chilled eateries and an abundance of beach view places to stay.
Nearby Chinderah is a restful riverside getaway, just a stone’s throw from the beach. Set on the banks of the Tweed River, your Chinderah holiday to-do list could include relaxed boating with a fishing rod, SUP or kayak paddling, slow walks along the winding river, 18 holes at the local course, vintage foraging at an antique store, lazy picnics in the park, fish and chips under the sun and good cheer at the local tavern overlooking the water.
