Tamarama

This small beach is located between two prominent headlands, with a sand filled valley to the back, surrounded by pleasant parkland and picnic areas. Tamarama is an extremely narrow beach and deceptive for its size. Tamarama Surf Club is located on the northern side, perched up on the headland where it overlooks the entire beach.

Inexperienced bathers could be fooled into thinking that the beach is safer due to its small size, however this is far from the truth. While only 80m long, Tamarama has a great wave climate. As a result one or two rip currents are always present, making the entire surf zone virtually all rip. Tamarama is considered the most dangerous patrolled beach in New South Wales, with more rescues per thousand bathers than any other of Sydney’s beaches.
