Life with kids on the Central Coast
Over the decades, most of us Australians hold fond memories of summer holidays spent at the beach. My father in-law often will tell his own story of growing up with his 2 brothers and their most memorable times were camping in Terrigal. Going back another generation, my Nanna actually honeymooned at The Entrance in April 1939 right before the war broke out.
My most treasured family holiday was the time my father borrowed a client’s caravan for a few days located at the Umina Beach Holiday Park. For us, it was so different from anything else we had ever done and was pure enjoyment. Waking up each morning to the waves crashing on the beach. As the sun rises and sets, fishing at the water’s edge and building sand castles during the day.
Living on the Central Coast we are spoilt for choice and no matter where you live, you are only a stone’s throw away from the seashore.
The Central Coast is literally lined with beaches to suit everyone’s taste. There are quiet secluded beaches; there are the surf beaches and the all-important family friendly beaches. There are roughly 20 of these golden treasures in total. For a region so close to Sydney and abundant with natural beauty, it’s hard to believe it’s not at the top of ‘Australia’s Hottest Regions’ to visit.
No matter which end of the Central Coast you go, you are likely to find a beach to suit. Scroll down for our Top 5 Beaches on the Central Coast...
During the summer months our beaches are patrolled by our Volunteer Surf Lifesavers. Whatever beach you decide to visit, just remember, stay safe, slip slop ‘n’ slap and swim between the red and yellow flags.
