Selecting a good beach around Yamba

Australia has a lot of coastline and the best park is it’s surf. The break at Turners Beach is protected from wind by the point on one side and the breakwall on the others.  This is a relatively safe surf break despite having some good waves making it a suitable practice ground for younger surfers.  You will see lots of local dolphins.

Angourie is of course the most iconic of the surf beaches in the area and the first in NSW to be designated as a national surf reserve.  It was recognised as a prime local surf spot in the early 1960’s and became internationally recognised in 1964 when many of the big name surfers of the time made a trip up from Sydney after the World Titles in Manly.

Between the two are several other beaches and breaks suited to various experience levels but Spooky Point and the aptly named Life & Death near the rocks at Angourie are best left to the experts.
