Tuggerah Beach is an exposed south-east to east-facing beach which runs for 8.2km from Pelican Point to Karagi Point, the sand spit that forms on the north side of the natural entrance to Tuggerah Lake.
The beach can be accessed in the north on foot from Soldiers Beach, and via two gravel roads in the new Wyrrabalong National Park, that provide parking and walkways to the beach.
In the south street access is provided in The Entrance North residential area, at the North Entrance Surf Club, and the caravan park and park on Karagi Point.
This area was a quiet backwater until the road from The Entrance to Norah Head was put through in 1970s.
The surf club, the youngest on the Central Coast, was formed in 1978.
