Turimetta Beach

Turimetta Beach is a beach in Sydney‘s Northern Beaches that is 350 metres long. Swimming here can be hazardous because of the rips that usually form, the beach is not patrolled by lifeguards, and it is usually only a swimmers beach. The surf quality is poor, and surfers generally frequent North Narrabeen Beach to the south or Warriewood Beach to the north. In 2016, a swimmer drowned in the surf and a 14yearold boy required rescue from the rocks closer to the northern end of the beach. The headland is a popular rock fishing spot, and many shark sightings have occurred there; some are confirmed and some are unconfirmed.
