It is often easier to keep visiting the same beaches than to tackle exploring a new one but that is the beauty of our Central Coast Weekender blog; giving us a great reason to explore the coast from end to end. First up on our list was Wamberal.
The beach front here is beautifully picturesque with views to the right across to Terrigal, to the left is Forresters Beach and the Wyrrabalong National Park headland. Along the beachfront are some houses, many with stair cases leading down onto the sand. It feels very Hamptons!
The Wamberal lagoon is close to the beach and provides access for water sports like SUP and kayaks. On a quiet winters morning exploring we stumbled across a group of proud owners, sailing beautiful model boats on the lagoon. It was a lovely unexpected sight.
As there is no rockpool area at Wamberal, little kids may enjoy splashing around in the shallows of the lagoon instead of hitting the waves of the beach.
The beach is patrolled by professional Gosford City council lifeguards during the warmer months so make sure you swim between the flags!
A popular surfing break is north of the main beach entrance with many a surfer walking along the sand to check out the best break when we visited.
Looking for refreshments or somewhere to relax with a cold drink and admire the view? The Point Café is located above the Wamberal Surf Life Saving Club, we are hoping to enjoy some lunch here soon.
If you are visiting the Wamberal area with children then there is a great park a short drive from the beach. You can read our review and check out some photos of what is on offer here.
