The locals of terrigal effortlessly warm up the new passing by families, friends and couples via keeping the beach life friendly, fun and the roads full of colourful beachside culture, welcoming reoccurring weekend markets by the beach and in the local parks where you can greet and chat to the locals and those small businesses whether it may be a food or drink stall, handmade crafts from the locals, an enchanting experience by the local psychic and even street musicians personalising a song on your behalf.
