Famed for its broad golden sand beach, tranquil lagoon and seaside vibe, Terrigal is a popular spot for swimming, surfing and socialising. Stroll the Norfolk pine-lined Esplanade of this NSW Central Coast town and you’ll find buzzing restaurants, cafes, boutiques, ice cream parlours and bars. A popular attraction is the new boardwalk connecting the esplanade to The Haven.

There are many venues to enjoy in the evening – head to the rooftops at Mumbo Jumbo’s, The Joker and Thief, Swells or Rhonda’s for cocktails and sunset views or enjoy the atmosphere of a live band at Terrigal Beach House at the Crowne Plaza Terrigal.

Terrigal beach is ideal for beginner surfers. You can learn to surf with the Central Coast Surf School or Central Coast Surf Academy. The pretty rockpool at the southern end of Terrigal Beach is popular with families. 

Children will love learning about sea creatures at the informative Central Coast Marine Discovery Centre. The Marine discovery Park is located over near the Terrigal Fire Station on Terrigal Drive which also has a cafe and children’s playground.
