Tourmaline Surf Park Beach

Tourmaline is a surfing-only beach, popular with novice surfers who are looking to get some practice in. The gentle, slow-rolling waves are perfect for beginners, longboarders, and even windsurfers and kiteboarders when the wind is high. Though you won’t see any swimmers here, many people like to come and watch the surfers at Tourmaline; especially at sunset as evening falls. There’s a small picnic area and parking lot here, as well.
