Cosmopolitan Terrigal is a pleasant place to visit.

A pathway beneath the tress leads along the beach out to Broken Head and the oddly-shaped headland known as ?The Skillion?.
The Skillion is the most prominent landmark of the region, with a steep cliff facing the ocean rising to a convenient lookout area, that is easily accessed by a flat grassy area leading up from the reserve.
