Yamba’s main beach, Turner’s Beach is next to the mouth of the Clarence River and is protected in both the north and the south by a break wall and a prominent headland. This makes for a soft beach break when it’s small and rolling white water in larger swells making it perfect for entry level surfers.
For the more experienced surfers, Yamba is located just a short distance from the world famous Angourie Point which offers an advanced surfing level break.
In total, there are 13 beautiful beaches across Yamba and Angourie to choose from and a number of surf schools who will show you the ropes. The Yamba-Angourie Surf School operates out of Turner’s Beach, just down the road from The Cove Yamba Holiday Apartments and is run by Australian surfing champion Jeremy Walters.
