Turimetta Beach has fantastic rock platforms to the south bordering Narabeen Head and North Narabeen. The rock p...latforms are wide and flat and give access to a deeper sand and rock seafloor which is popular with the local fisherman. The sea and tides over time have worn and scored the rocks into geometric triangles and have also made small rivulets and waterfalls which are fun to explore at low tide.
