The waves too big, and it’s windy there. But kids still have fun and enjoy the day on the beach. We stay in the crown plaza, so it’s easy for us to back and forth hotel and the beach.

It feels like a north shore Sydney beach and does not have atmosphere(not a good thing). Its good for a swim in the warmer months. The channel is a good place to chill.

A very nice Central Coast beach with lifeguards on duty.The beach has a Rockpool at the end of it and a cafe under surf club for coffee and food. Although parking can sometimes be an issue it's well worth a visit.

Of the three worst water quality beach's in NSW, (October 2017) Terrigal is unfortunately one, and nearby Avoca is another. Two out of three of all NSW beach's! Aside from the poor water quality, Terrigal and Avoca are beautiful beach's, and both have excellent Lifesaving...More
