On the south side of Turimetta Head is a 1 km wide-open embayment bordered by 30 m high Narrabeen Head to the south. In between is 350 m long Turimetta Beach (NSW 309, also called Little Narrabeen), with rock platforms and cliffs filling the rest of the bay. The beach is backed by 20-30 m high partially vegetated, steep shale bluffs, then blufftop houses and a road. The beach can only be reached on foot from the north or south end, or round the rock platform from North Narrabeen. It offers no facilities and is a relatively natural beach with rocky areas on the beach and in the surf. It receives waves averaging 1.5 m, which break close to shore over a usually narrow bar and the rocks. Two to three rips usually form at each end and there is a central rip amongst the rocks. During high seas the thin veneer of sand is often stripped off the beach exposing the underlying sandstone and shale rocks.

Swimming

Be careful here. It’s unpatrolled, has rocks in the surf, together with rips and often dumping waves.

Surfing

Turimetta is popular with beachgoers wanting to escape the crowds. The beach offers a bit of a left over the northern rocks and reef, but more often short beach breaks.

Fishing

The northern Turimetta rock platform is the site of a treated sewerage outlet, however it is also the most popular fishing site. The beach has both gutters and exposed rocks following large seas, while the southern rocks are wide and flat and give access to a deeper sand and rock seafloor.
