Turimetta Beach - Australia

Turimetta Beach is something of a hidden gem in Sydney’s Northern Beaches neighbourhood. At about 350 metres long and with an average width of only 2 metres, it is not the largest beach in the area, but that doesn’t make its soft clean sands any less attractive.

Ringed on its landward side by sheer cliffs that rise between 20 and 30 metres up, the shoreline of Turimetta Beach is also dotted with shelves of rock, forming small rock pools at low tide which are popular with children.

While plenty of people recommended Turimetta Beach for swimming, bathers should be aware of the rip currents that exist at its central portion and at either end. There are also no lifeguards on duty here. In addition to swimming, Turimetta Beach is considered a good place for body boarding, although surfers would do better heading elsewhere.

The rocks around Turimetta Headland make for a great fishing ground, while the cliffs offer the chance to catch sight of the occasional shark. When it comes to facilities, you won’t find anything more that a freshwater tap for washing off the sand.
