Famous for its idyllic white sand beach, great surfing, swimming and snorkelling conditions, but when it comes to land-based activities, the Esplanade – Terrigal's social centre with shops, bars and a lively café culture, holds centre stage. Holidaymakers head here on weekends and in the summer, but it's the locals who are lucky enough to enjoy Terrigal's laid-back lifestyle year round.
Surrounded by natural beauty, Terrigal residents spend much of their time outdoors. On any given day, you can spot them swimming, surfing, fishing, snorkelling, boating and water skiing in the sparkling sea that's on their doorstep. Just behind the beach, Terrigal Lagoon is a peaceful spot to swim and relax, but if land-based activities are more your style, Terrigal has you covered there too.
