Sydney's Northern Beaches: 10 Beaches, 10 Images, #9 - Turimetta Beach


Turimetta Beach is a small 350m long beach between Turimetta and Narrabeen Head backed by 20 to 30 m high shale bluffs. The beach receives waves averaging 1.5m which break close to shore, and often has a heavy shore break. Two or three rips usually form at each end of the beach and in the centre amongst the rocks.

The beach is un-patrolled with no facilities.

General Conditions:
- Good swimming and body surfing conditions
- Strong shore break at times
- Excellent surfing conditions at the north end
- Good surfing breaks along the beach. Best in North Easterly winds.

Here's a great guide for Turimetta photography.
