(4.3/5 based on 180+ reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: shopping, spas
Ettalong Beach is a suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia south of Woy Woy on Brisbane Water at the point where it meets Broken Bay, about 80 km north of Sydney. It is part of the City of Gosford local government area. Ettalong Beach is the natural eastward continuation of Umina Beach and Ocean Beach. The village is serviced by a small retail centre along Ocean View Road.The Mantra Ettalong Beach Resort (formerly operated by Outrigger) and Ettalong Beach War Memorial Club was completed in 2005.A "Fast Ferry" had been proposed from Ettalong to Circular Quay, Sydney. If it had been established, the service was expected to take only 40 minutes, compared to 1 hour 15 min for the train journey from neighbouring Woy Woy to Sydney.However, the company behind this idea became bankrupt in 2008, and the Fast Ferry Proposal was abandoned (http://www.peninsulanews.asn.au/News/08/0211/Released.asp). The ferry service was approved by Gosford City Council and remains with an active development consent so that a future operator could commence ferry services to Sydney.BusinessThe Ettalong Beach retail centre is represented by the Peninsula Chamber of Commerce which is affiliated with the NSW Business Chamber. The Chamber successfully introduced the Peninsula Mainstreet Program in 1995 which instigated the heritage upgrade of the village centre. This led to the main street footpath paving and street landscaping which were undertaken through Gosford City Council's 1998 Financial Strategy resulting in the rejuvenation of the village. The main employers in the village are the Ettalong Beach Club, Mantra Resort, IGA Supermarket and Ettalong Beach Hotel. Ettalong Beach is also renowned for the Ettalong Beach Markets at the eastern end of Ocean View Road. The market complex also includes a range of restaurants and caf├ęs together with the ornate Cinema Paradiso operated by a local family.
