Roaring Beach (T 335) is the only surfing beach on the western side of Tasman Peninsula. The 900 m long southwest-facing beach is located on the more exposed western coast 5 km west of Nubeena, with access to a high car park via the Roaring Bay Road. The beach receives waves averaging up to 1.5 m increasing in height up the beach. They break across a 100 m wide rip-dominated surf zone (Fig. 4.60). There are usually two beach rips with permanent rips flowing out against the boundary headlands, which extend 300 m to the southwest. The strongest rip is usually against the northern headland. There are beach breaks along the beach, with the best surf usually towards the southern end of the beach. A transgressive dune field fills the small valley backing the northern half of the beach, with the now vegetated dunes extending up to 600 m inland and to 30 m in height. Only one large blowout remains active. A small creek meanders through the dunes and occasionally breaks out across the centre of the beach. The beach, dunes and adjacent shoreline are located in the Roaring Beach Coastal Reserve.
