Terrigal has a lot of self-catering accommodation, apartments and houses, and for at least some of the time holidaymakers in them will want to make their own meals.
A good local stop to buy the essentials is right in the heart of Terrigal, in the centre of The Esplanade which runs along the beachfront.
It's a large supermarket for a small town with a very good range of groceries, fresh food, deli, cooking needs, bread, confectionary - all the things you expect to find in a supermarket.
An unusual shop for a small seaside town but one well worth calling on. It's only a small shop but has a surprisingly wide range of carefully selected men's designer clothing. The interior is tastefully decorated and even if you don't plan to buy it's a pleasure to browse. Greg the owner personally attends to customers and apart from his non-intrusive and non-pushy sales approach, he's very knowledgeable and helpful. He also has the knack of knowing what will suit you!
Sells top quality men's designer label clothes eg; Boss, Gant, both casual and formal, including shirts, suits, jackets, ties, shoes etc
What to buy: Top quality men's clothes and shoes - formal, business and casual.
What to pay: Between A$250 to A$1500
