Fodor's Review

Averaging waves around 3 feet, this long, picturesque white-sand beach is a great option for swimmers and amateur surfers alike. Patrolled year-round by one of Queensland's oldest surf life saving clubs, rips are common along this strip, so stay in the central area between the red-and-yellow flags. A busy walking and cycling track runs adjacent to the beachfront, connecting visitors to both Cotton Tree and Alexandra Headland. A few minutes north is Maroochy River, a popular fishing spot and water sports activities hub. As with almost all Sunshine Coast beaches, an array of shops, cafés, and eateries line the esplanade. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, toilets, showers, water sports. Best for: swimming, walking, surfing, sunset.
