Fodor's Review

Flanked by a timber boardwalk with stunning views across the coastline, Bulcock Beach is one of Caloundra's most popular surfing spots. Children enjoy the small paddling pools that form across the sand at low tide, while nearby Happy Valley parkland creates the perfect canvas for games of Frisbee and traditional "Aussie" beachside cricket. Surf the break off Deepwater Point, or enjoy boogie-boarding or bodysurfing in the swell closer to shore. Rips can form through the channel, so stay between the flags and only swim when the beach is patrolled (September–May). When you've had too much sun, head across the road for cafés, restaurants, shops, and a place to cool off. Amenities: lifeguards; parking; toilets. Best for: sunrise; sunset; surfing; walking.
