Crowdy Head lies on a peninsula with beaches on both sides. North Beach sweeps in a long arc through to Diamond Head Beach and is a safe swimming beach because it is sheltered from the southerly winds. Four wheel drive beach access is available near the Surf Lifesaving Club. South Beach stretches to the Manning River entrance and is more suited for board riders. Four wheel drive beach access is available south of Crowdy Head.

Seasonal whale watching tours are in high demand. During migration Humpback Whale sightings are frequent occurances. Winter and late spring are the best times of the year for whale watching in the area. Deep-sea fishing also draws many visitors and is available all year round.

Crowdy Head is one of the rare places along the coastline that permits fishing at night. The most frequently caught fish are Snapper and Pearl Perch. The seafood co-op at Crowdy Head is a seafood lover's delight with the fresh catch of the day a tempting treat.
