Fodor's Review

A popular choice for families, beautiful Coolum Beach boasts a surf club, skate park, playgrounds, change rooms, toilets, kiosk, shorefront parks, and well-maintained picnic areas. A long, white-sand beach, Coolum is patrolled year-round, and offers a nice beach break and some decent, uncrowded waves off the headland. Fish from the beach in the evening for jewfish, tailor, bream, and dart; catch bream around the headland, especially in winter. Walk south along the

boardwalk to the headland park for magnificent coastal views, or north to quieter Peregian Beach with its patrolled surf, playground, and adjacent Environmental Park. For a break from the sun, head down David Low Way for shops, cafés, and restaurants. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, toilets, showers. Best for: surfing, swimming, walking, sunset.
