TERRIGAL At A Glance
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.
The Esplanade, a buzzing strip of shops, cafés and restaurants that's lined with beautiful Norfolk Island pines.
The Skillion has great views of the coastline and Terrigal Lagoon has all the fun of the ocean but without the waves.
'Terrigal' is thought to come from the Aboriginal word, Tarragal, meaning the place of little birds.
