Famous Beaches on the Central Coast
The Central Coast is home to over 40 beaches that span over 87km of coastline. It is this that makes the Central coast one of the favourite holiday destinations for many people. The only problem with having so many beaches on the coast is how do you choose what beach to go too? Each beach has pros and cons depending on your requirements. Some of the more popular surfing beaches may not be as suitable if you have small children, and some beaches are not patrolled.
Here we list some of our favourite beaches and ones that are much more accessible from our holiday apartments at Ettalong Beach.
Ettalong Beach is the perfect beach for families. there are no breaking waves and some shallow water that is great for wading kids, however the current can be stronger at times as the water opens out into Broken Bay and Lion Island. Ettalong Beach’s appeal lies in its beaches, lagoons, waterways and safe swimming for children.
Umina Beach is a short walk from Ettalong Beach and and a popular holiday destination. Umina has two patrolled beaches, Umina Beach and Ocean Beach, which occupy a 2.8km stretch of golden sand in Broken Bay.
Both beaches are quite calm for swimming and have some decent small waves for kids to splash around in and are the perfect size for kids and novices to learn to surf and body board.
Terrigal is one of the more famous beaches on the Central Coast. The beach itself is patrolled year round and offers good size waves for novice surfers. The Norfolk Palm lined main street is a big attraction and the ocean rock pool tucked into the cliff at the Southern End. Terrigal Haven is a protected boat Harbour with boat ramp, fishing charters, scuba diving and snorkelling, picnic and BBQ facilities.
Soldiers Beach is just south of the Historic Norah Head Lighthouse, Soldiers Beach is increasingly popular for its pristine white sand, clear water and reliable waves. This is very popular for board riders year-round.
Avoca Beach is another of the most famous beaches on the Central Coast. Home to many local surfing legends. It is definitely one of the most popular surfing beaches with the locals.
