Fodor's Review

South of Maroochydoore's main beach and just north of Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland offers a reliable surf break in moderate to high swell. The beach is patrolled year-round, but swimmers need to take care to avoid the headland rocks at the southern end of the beach where there is often a strong rip. A shady park, barbecue and picnic area, kiosk, playground, skatepark, and walking and cycling tracks color the foreshore, with many alfresco cafés and restaurants also nearby. Cast a line at the river mouth or off the headland for bream, dart, whiting, and flathead, or take advantage of rip holes for beach fishing. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, toilets, showers. Best for: surfing, swimming, walking, sunset.
