As we’ve already mentioned, 2 of the biggest hotels in Ettalong Beach are the Mantra Ettalong Beach and the Ettalong Beach village, but these are a couple of the many accommodation options available in this gorgeous delightful holiday spot.
Ettalong accommodation is varied and plentiful, with something for every taste and budget. As with many Central Coast vacation hotspots, one of the most popular ways to arrange a weekend getaway in this lovely beachside community is to investigate the many holiday rentals that are on offer in the area. Due to it’s proximity to both Sydney and Newcastle, Ettlaong and neighbouring beaches like Umina, Saratoga, MacMasters and Copacabana, have become popular for weekenders and holiday houses and an increasing number of city dwellers leave the suburbs on Friday evening after work and head up (or down) the coast for a couple of days of chilling by the sea.
If you feel like joining the regulars, check out some of the many websites which advertise holiday houses and see if you can find something that suits your budget and needs. There are all kinds of cabins, cottages, beach shacks and luxury apartments available so you should be able to find whatever you’re looking for, be it somewhere intimate for a romantic escape for 2, a larger property with plenty of rooms and space for a big weekend away with your mates.
Of course, some people like Ettalong so much that they make it a permanent part of their lives and invest in property up on the Central Coast. Over the years, places like Avoca and Terrigal, in particular, have seen an influx of people buying holiday homes to enjoy over the long summer break or just the occasional weekend away. If you think that you too might like to own a little piece of this beautiful part of Australia, there are plenty of local real estate agents who can help you with your search and advise you on the best deals in the local property market.
Another option is to really embrace the great outdoors and take a camping holiday. The Ettalong Beach Holiday Village has a range of fully equipped holiday cabins on its grounds as well as a number of powered sites for camper trailers and caravans. One of the great attractions of choosing to stay here is that you’re only a short walk to both the town centre with its cafes and shops and the famous Cinema Paradiso, Ettalong which screens all the latest releases.
Alternatively, you might like to stay at the Ocean Beach Resort and Holiday Park in Umina. This NRMA Holiday Park is ideally situated right on the beachfront at Umina Beach and has all the facilities that you would expect from a major holiday resort. A bonus of this holiday park is that the holiday accommodation includes tent sites, along with a huge selection of villas, cabins, cottages and even the Safari Palm Treehouses for those who’d to experience ‘glamping’ or glamour camping.
Ettalong is a great place to relax for a few days, so why not check out the accommodation around the town for your next holiday?
