Turimetta Beach is a beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches. It is 350 metres long and is backed by steep bluffs. Swimming can be hazardous because of rips that usually form at the centre and both ends of the beach. The beach is not patrolled by lifeguards. Turimetta is more often than not a swimmers' beach only. The surf quality is poor and surfers usually frequent North Narrabeen Beach to the south or Warriewood Beach to the north.

Most recently a swimmer drowned in big surf as well as a young 14yo boy requiring rescue from the rocks closer to the northern end of the beach.[1]

The headland is a popular rock fishing spot so many shark sightings, both confirmed and unconfirmed, have occurred.
