Photo Diary from the Central Coast

In January, my boyfriend and I spent a few days at the Central Coast to relax, unwind and recharge.   It was great to be able to just throw all our things into the car, drive for about an hour and a half and be in a completely new, chilled out environment.  There was no airport or travel dramas to worry about.

We stayed at the gorgeous Bells at Killcare which was was quiet with a pool, big lawns and a great restaurant. It was also just a few minutes away from the beach and Hardy’s Bay where we ate lunch a few times over the week.

We ate, read, slept, went to the beach, swam in the pool and relaxed for the first time in months.  The staff at our hotel were really lovely, and the pace of life in the Central Coast seemed slower and nicer compared to Sydney.  It was easy to go to the beach where we had free parking and plenty of space.  We also saw (but didn’t swim in) a few secluded, un-patrolled beaches including Pretty Beach which is reached by foot through a quick walk  through Bouddi National Park. Killcare is a lovely area and the perfect place for a getaway if you are in need of unwinding and recharging.

Putty Beach where the waves became stronger and crashed to the shores as the evening wore on.

  1. Completely agree – we are so lucky to have such beautiful places to visit and stay just a short drive from Sydney.
    I’ll keep this in mind next time I need a weekend away…which will be soon 😛
