Summary: Tabourie Beach is a long surf beach at the northern end of Meroo National Park on the NSW south coast.

Stretching from the entrance to Tabourie Lake down to Stokes Island, Tabourie Beach is 1.7km in length. Multiple rips can make swimming hazardous, so caution is required. A reef break called the Dum-Dums often produces good surfing conditions, and paddle boarding is popular inside the river mouth at the northern end.

At the southern end of the beach is Stokes Island, a rock islet that is often connected to the beach by a sandbar at low tide.
