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.Read less
