One of the best-known beaches on the Central Coast, Terrigal Beach is a cosmopolitan seaside town, as popular with locals as it is with visitors. The beach offers safe swimming and has a small ocean rock pool tucked into the cliff at the southern end. Also at the southern end of Terrigal Beach is Terrigal Haven, a protected boat harbour with boat ramp, fishing charters, scuba diving and snorkelling, picnic and barbecue facilities.
Professional Central Coast Council lifeguards patrol Terrigal Beach from Monday until Friday. During weekends and on public holidays these locations are patrolled by Surf Life Saving volunteers.
Beach patrol services commence operation on 29 September 2018 and conclude 29 April 2019 between 9am and 5pm. During the summer period, 3 December 2018 – 1 February 2019, the beach will be patrolled between 8am and 6pm.
People with a disability will now find it easier to access Terrigal Beach with a Sand Cruiser and a Hippocampe (adult size) wheelchair available for bookings. Contact Terrigal Surf Club for bookings 02 4385 6933.
