Roaring Beach is a beach notable for its sand dunes, surfing and beach combing on Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania, Australia

Surfing[edit]

This popular surfing beach is the only one on the west coast of Tasman Peninsula, which is the prevailing wind direction. It has a dangerous rip.[1]

It is part of Protected areas of Tasmania under Conservation areas. It is accessed by road from Nubeena (the aboriginal word for crayfish).

Aboriginal artefacts[edit]

Middens, fossilised wood and stone tools exist near the mouth of the creek.[2]
