Watch from a vantage point high up on the cliff as surfers catch waves. Join in if you’re an experienced surfer. Wander around the tide pools that surround the beach and see what sea creatures you can find. The tide pools are small and warm, so they’re also nice to bathe in.
Wander along the shoreline and feel the cool water lap around your ankles. The waters of Tamarama Beach are known to be quite rough, so it is not the best place for swimming. If you do swim, make sure there is a lifeguard on duty and stay between the flags.
