Terrigal is located on the Central Coast, approximately an one hour drive from Sydney and caters for locals as well as holiday makers. Terrigal is a popular tourist destination with a selection of restaurants, cafes, take away food and boutique shops.

The beach is four kms long and Terrigal Beach is located on the southern end. A row of majestic Norfolk Pines line the beachfront esplanade. There is heaps of water activities such as swimming, surfing, boating, water skiing, diving and fishing to enjoy. There is a rock pool on the southern side of Terrigal Beach, which is ideal for small children. However, it is subject to tidal conditions and at low tide can be empty.

There is a variety of holiday accommodation available and being so close to Sydney makes Terrigal an ideal weekend getaway.

Crowne Plaza Terrigal

The Crowne Plaza Terrigal has ocean front accommodation. There is a signature restaurant, two bars, which have amazing views of Terrigal Beach.

The Haven and Skillion

My husband and myself recently met up with good friends (the old gang) at the Haven picnic area. We bought fish and chips for lunch, chatted and enjoyed the ocean views.

At the Haven there are small restaurants, cafes, boat ramp, oval and club house.

After lunch we walked up to the Skillion. The Skillion is the local landmark and is a strange shaped headland. From the top there are stunning views over the ocean and Terrigal.

In the last few years, a staircase and path have been built leading to the top of the Skillion. The locals were not happy with the construction. It has been called ‘environmental vandalism’. As the Skillion is a natural feature, they wish it was left the way it was.

TerrigalWe then walked to the Crowne Plaza for drinks at the bar. It was so relaxing looking out onto Terrigal Beach and the stately Norfolk Pines. What a perfect way to spend a Sunday.


There are picnic shelters, bench seats, toilets, electric barbecues are located at The Haven. Dogs are not allowed on Terrigal Beach, however there is an off leash exercise area at the southern headland – see map for location.

    Terrigal is a good one to put on your to do list next time you visit Sydney. I love the Central Coast, I would love to move there permanently.

  7. Hi Jan

    I usually go to the beach when I visit the Central Coast. Not familiar with bushwalking tracks and mountain climbing on the Central Coast. Have you tried the walking track in the Royal National Park in Sutherland?

  8. Hi Carolyn

    It is always nice having a quiet weekend away and having an ocean view is just so relaxing. I also enjoy walking along the beach, love the smell of the fresh sea air.
