Terrigal always offers plenty of potential for my photography and is always somewhere I frequently return to.
It’s main beach stretches for about one kilometre and is characterized by its golden sand, clear blue waters, and a vibrant surf culture. The surf club is a prominent feature of the beach, providing a safe swimming area and facilities such as showers, toilets, and a kiosk. Terrigal Beach is also surrounded by a range of cafes, restaurants, and shops, making it one of the most popular destinations on the Coast.
Terrigal boardwalk skirts the southern headland of Terrigal Beach and offers great views of the ocean and the town. The short walk will bring you to the picturesque headland of The Haven. The Haven has a calm and sheltered beach, making it a great spot for kids to swim and play safely. It also is an excellent spot to relax for fishing and has several rock platforms perfect for casting a line. On top of the headland, there are grassy areas with picnic tables and a lookout points that provides breathtaking views of the coastline.
My personal favourite is the Skillion, a steep rocky outcrop that juts out into the sea. The Skillion provides a dramatic foreground for sunrise and sunset shots, and in season, it's also a great location for whale watching.
Terrigal Lagoon is a beautiful location for boating and fishing, as well as capturing the serene landscape. The still waters reflect the sky, creating a beautiful mirror image.
If you prefer a quieter beach experience, walking along the beach to Wamberal is a great option.
