Warriewood Beach (NSW 308) extends for another 500 m from the northern cliff face and rocks, that separate it from Mona Vale Beach, to the base of 60 m high Turimetta Head, which trends 700 m to the southeast. The beach is backed by 30-40 m high vegetated bluffs, with access restricted to a steep, narrow road which winds down the southern slopes to a narrow beachfront car park, with overflow parking at the top of the bluffs. A set of stairs connects the top car park with the centre of the beach. A reserve offering excellent beach and ocean views occupies the southern Turimetta Head. The Warriewood SLSC, was established in 1949 and is located on the southern slopes providing members with a superb view up the beach. Turimetta Head affords the beach some protection from southerly waves and winds which cause the beach to curve round to face the east-northeast. Waves average about 1.5 m and a single usually attached bar runs to the north. It is always cut by a permanent rip that flows out over the southern rocks (known as Pot Rock) and a central and usually a northern rip in front of the cliffs (Fig. 4.205).
