One of the most popular beaches the Central Coast has to offer, Terrigal Beach is the ultimate location to relax, cool down and get a taste of NSW. Offering safe swimming year round thanks to the life guards that patrol it (from October long weekend until the end of the April school holidays), the beach also boasts a wonderful small ocean rock pool that proves perfect for those looking to escape the waves. Surrounded by picnic areas of both the grassed and under cover picnic table kind, why not grab the family, some friends or whoever you can find and enjoy a day at the beach topped off with a barbecue using one of the free, electronic barbecues. Or, let someone do the cooking for you and enjoy one of the closely located cafes and restaurants that neighbour the beach. The beach is lined with pine trees giving you a true beachside feeling the moment you step on the sand. And once you're finished at the beach, The Skillion - a prominent, steep cliff that offers one of the best views in Terrigal - is only a stones throw away.
