Beautiful Dolphin Cove is at the southern end of North Tura Beach. Even in the middle of summer holidays, this beach isn't crowded.

This beach is a bit 'discreet' with no obvious big carpark,and entry from 2 locations within the residential area - but seek it out and you'll be rewarded with very few, if any, fellow beach-goers, plus ample golden sands, crystal waters and gorgeous views all around!


Accessible by a short walk from one entry on Bournda Circuit, there's a couple of car parks next to the pumping station, then it's about 300m to the viewing platform and stairs down to the beach.


Alternatively drive in through Dolphin Cove Drive, park in the dirt carpark and take the 300m walk to the second viewing platform.  On calm days this is a superior snorkeling spot, and you can walk to Bournda Island along the beach if you are up for a challenge.


The surf can be good here too so don't forget the boards - and sunscreen and water, there's no facilities here, but it's only a quick drive from Tura Beach shops.


From here, there's another very good walk above the cliff tops through the tea tree around to Tura Head where you can walk right out to the end.  Great for rock fishing and you can also look for the famous Tura Headland rock pool, captured by many a photographer!

Also Tura Beach & Tura Headland.
