So I can understand why the Central Coast is a favourite beach getaway for Sydneysiders: 87 km of rugged coastline. A vast extend of natural bushland and breathtaking scenery. And most importantly, 41 beautiful beaches and great surf. Already feeling more relaxed?

Not to mention chic cafes and restaurants are on the rise.

Beaches
