Lovely Sunshine Beach, incorporating 16 km (10 miles) of beachfront that stretches north to Noosa national park, is patrolled year-round. Beach breaks, reliable swell, a rocky headland sheltering it from winds, and clear, glassy water make Sunshine popular with surfers. When northeasterlies blow, surf the northern pocket. Fish off the beach year-round for dart, bream, and flathead, or cast a long line into deep water to hook numerous seasonal species. From here, hike past nudist-friendly Alexandria Bay to Noosa, or end a long day of swimming with a beer or a meal at The Sunshine Beach Surf Club. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, toilets, showers. Best for: surfing, swimming, walking, sunrise, sunset.
