Cabarita Beach is a locality in northeastern New South Wales which occupies a thin strip of beach-side land along the Coral Sea coast, east of Tweed Coast Road, in the Tweed Shire town of Bogangar. Locally, the names Cabarita Beach and Bogangar are interchangeable; either may be used when referring to the whole settlement, with more people using the former. Hastings Point lies close to Cabarita Beach to the south and Casuarina to the north. At the 2016 census Cabarita Beach had a population of 103, Bogangar 3060. Cabarita Beach is located within the Tweed Shire Local Government Authority.

The beach itself, as well as the adjacent Norries Headland, are popular tourist attractions. The surf break to the north of the headland is also very popular.

The first major development in Cabarita Beach was the original Cabarita Hotel, opened on 17 December 1960. That building has since been replaced by a modern glass, chrome and concrete structure.
