Turimetta Beach is a little known beach located in Warriewood in northern Sydney. Even on its busiest days, the place is pretty quiet, so you won't have to compete for space on the sand.

On New Year's Day I found hardly anyone there, although it was admittedly overcast.


However, you shouldn't go rushing to this stretch of coastline too soon, especially if you intend to go for a swim. The beach has no surf club and is not patrolled, so it's definitely not the safest place to get wet. It also has no facilities (such as toilets), though there is a small shower, tap and seats up the top.

A fake lifeguard tower is the closest you'll get to real patrols


That's another thing about the beach; you need to park at the top of the cliffs and make your way down quite a lot of stairs to get to the sand. It might be fine on the way down, but not everyone will feel like ending their day with a steep climb. The stairs at the southern end do seem shorter though.

While there's a great view from the top of the cliff, you do have to get down from here.


Turimetta is a beach I think is most suited to those who like relaxing on the sand, or for surfers who live in the area and are familiar with its moods. With its few visitors, it's a great place to appreciate a serene, more natural side to the city we live in.

At the southern end is a stretch of flat rocks, criss-crossed with natural geometric shapes.


You don't even need to go in the water to make discoveries


In fact, the beauty of this area of Sydney's coast is often the reason people find Turimetta, as they complete the coastal walk between Warriewood Beach and Narrabeen, which passes along the top of the cliffs at the back of the beach. Otherwise, the beach is mainly used by locals.

Rating: 7/10

Where: Off Narrabeen Park Parade in Warriewood, just north of Narrabeen Head Reserve.
Why: It's less crowded than many other Sydney beaches.
Cost: Free
When: When it's hot, sunny and you have a day off - the beach is always there.

Good for kids: Up to you. It's a beach, so kids will enjoy building sandcastles and exploring; but there are no patrols, and there are lots of stairs.
