The scenic Terrigal Beach, on the Central Coast of New South Wales, is just over an hour drive from from Sydney but is often missed by most travellers.

This beautiful area has plenty of stunning beaches, natural bushland, and excellent surf, making it an ideal destination to visit for a long weekend getaway or day trip from the city.

Terrigal Beach was a favourite hang out of mine when I was finishing up school and heading into college.

We spent many days out there exploring this gorgeous Aussie beach town, and while there aren’t a huge amount of things to do in Terrigal Beach, it’s the perfect place to relax in and spend some time by the waves.

If you’re road tripping the East Coast from Sydney to Brisbane, swing your car down Kariong Mountain and make Terrigal Beach a destination to stop off at.

1. Learn to surf or relax at Terrigal Beach

Terrigal Beach is a small cove that generally has very calm surf conditions, making it the perfect place to have a surf lesson with Central Coast Surf Academy.

It’s one of the best-known beaches on the NSW Central Coast because of its cleanliness and outdoor activities.

The southern end of Terrigal Beach is more family friendly, with gentler waves, a small ocean rock pool, and a greater amount of space to spread out and play in.

The beach is lined many boutiques, gift shops, ice cream parlours, cafes and restaurants, which get extremely busy during the weekend and summer days and of an evening.

Terrigal Surf Club is a great spot to sit and have a coffee with panoramic views. For lunch we recommend grabbing some local seafood and finding a patch of grass or sand to sit and enjoy them.

There may even be a Surf Carnival for you to watch while you do.

2. Admire Terrigal Beach Lagoon

The Terrigal Board Walk wraps around Terrigal Beach and takes you to Terrigal Lagoon and Wamberal Beach, in the opposite direction to Terrigal Haven.

Where Terrigal and Wamberal Beach meet, the calm and gentle waters of The Lagoon lies just behind a small strip of sand under the cliff.

The Lagoon is a good spot to hire a paddle boat or one of the more popular activities – stand up paddleboarding.
