Umina Beach, New South Wales, Central Coast
The little town of Umina Beach is not far from Woy Woy. It is small, but has everything you need including a Coles and plenty of takeaway shops.
We stayed here for a week while visiting my grandmother who is terminally ill. We wanted somewhere quite, private & secluded away from the busy suburbs of the central coast.
Most shops are within walking distance no matter where you stay in Umina Beach. We stayed in an Air B’n’B which was considerably cheaper than hotels in the Gosford area.
Umina Beach is patrolled and has a great recreation & playground area for families.
I highly recommend checking Air BnB for accomodation as it was cheaper per night by around 50%. We were able to fit two more days into our budget using the service. If you have not signed up yet, get $55 referral credit HERE.
The highlight of Umina Beach was…Umina Beach! The beach was beautiful with perfect waves for kids to zoom of their boards.
The conditions were not rough during our stay and the lifeguards were on patrol right up until the evening.
We enjoyed Fish & Chips at a place called Batty’s which were delicious and shopped at Coles for everything else.
Umina Beach is is 85 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD and 111 kilometres south of the Newcastle CBD.
