Terrigal’s Main Beach

The town of Terrigal is set on the southern end of a long, golden beach. Walk along the 4 km stretch of sand and enjoy the mediterranean climate and ocean breeze.

The patrolled beach is favoured by families, as it offers safe swimming conditions, year-round. As an added bonus, Terrigal Beach features a rockpool, a big hit with the kids.

Watch surfers ride the waves or grab your board and join them! If you’re new to surfing, sign up for lessons at the Central Coast Surf School. Not far from Terrigal’s main beach, the rougher waters of Wamberal and Terrigal Haven attract more experienced surfers.

Exploring Terrigal’s Lagoons

Terrigal has two main lagoons, with their own host of activities for families and nature lovers. Just behind the main beach is Terrigal Lagoon, filling with sea water at high tide. Here, you can go paddle boating or stand-up paddle boating. If you have kids, take them to feed the ducks, or go for a leisurely stroll on the path lining the lagoon.

To the north of town, Wamberal Lagoon is set amidst a nature reserve. This bigger lagoon is surrounded by both coastal and hinterland vegetation and is a haven for numerous bird species. The lagoon’s lesser-known beaches allow visitors to escape Terrigal’s hustle and bustle for a while.
