A stone throw’s away from the coastal village of Merimbula
Tura Beach is home to an epic headland that borders two long beautiful white beaches. This iconic beach also offers lakeside swimming and surf beach, with cafes that offer scenic water views nearby.



On the southern side, Tura Beach extends to Merimbula's Short Point, and the Northside continues to Bournda Island, in Bournda National Park, and follows onto Wallagoot Lake.

There are many walks nearby, including the Sandy Creek Loop Track (6km loop), Tura Beach Headland (1km), and beach walk to Short Point or Bournda Island.

Walk to Bournda Island


There are plenty of water-based activities to enjoy at Tura Beach, such as fishing, boating, scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming, and kayaking. There are also cruise tours available, not only of the coast but the surrounding lakes and waterways of Sapphire Coast.

Fishing time!


Whale watching and dolphin spotting cruises are also available.
Surfing can also be enjoyed here; the surf is often good on the north or south side of the beach depending on the swell.



No matter what time of the year it is, Tura Beach can be enjoyed. In winter explore the plethora of hidden spots, discover wildlife and birds and in the warmer months keep an eye out for the little Jacky Dragons that sunbake themselves on the rocks, and in late winter and spring whale watching can be enjoyed.

Do note that this beach is not patrolled, so do take care. And access to the beach is via stairs or steep tracks.

The beach offers dog-friendly off-leash areas.

Getting Here:
Take Sapphire Coast Drive from Merimbula or Tathra, turn onto Tura Beach Drive at the shopping complex, then onto Surf Circle.

There is a carpark that is bordered by the golf course.
