Bargara is part of the string of holiday settlements that fringe the Bundaberg coast from Burnett Head south to Elliott Heads. Bargara is fringed by four beaches; Nielsen Park to the north, small Bargara Beach in the centre, which is the home of the Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club, and Kellys Beach to the south, which consists of two parts and is also patrolled by the lifesavers. Bargara Beach (1502) is located immediately east of the town centre and is backed by a beachfront road, with good beach access and parking. The beach is crossed by three basalt groynes, designed to keep the sand in place and define the boat ramp area. The beach is approximately 300 m long and consists of two parts. There is a 100 m long, high tide sandy section fronted by rock flats north of the main groyne, and a more sandy, 200 m long section on the south side of the groyne, where the groyne-defined boat launching area is also located.
