CLEAN white sand, friendly locals and a choice of surf or calm bays make the Sunshine Coast one of the top destinations in the world for beach lovers.
From the family friendly and safe Mooloolaba Beach to the more adventurous Coolum and Kawana stretches, there is an incredible variety on offer.
Noosa's best with a backdrop that includes a world heritage listed national park, is one of the most spectacular on offer anywhere.
Sunshine Coast beaches are rarely crowded.
There is space for everyone to stretch out on the sand, play beach sports, swim, body surf, or jump on a board and ride a wave all the way in to shore.
Our beaches are equipped with excellent recreational facilities like beachfront parklands, children's playgrounds, undercover barbecue and picnic areas, toilets and showers and plenty of parking just a few steps from the sand.
Caloundra's Kings Beach, with its saltwater pool, and nearby playground, is very popular with young families, while Mudiimba Beach, with its own island just offshore, is a must for photographers and nature lovers.
Some of the best beaches for children include Kings Beach, Bulcock Beach, Golden Beach, Cotton Tree, Mooloolaba Beach and Mooloolaba Spit, which offer excellent beachside playgrounds.
Noosa Main Beach is one of the few north-facing beaches on Australia's east coast, providing safe sheltered waters for young families and novice surfers.
Surfers will find the best surf breaks at Point Cartwright, Alexandra Headland, Sunshine Beach, Moffat Beach and between Coolum and Peregian - the local surfers are friendly and will happily share the waves.
If you're travelling with dogs, you (and your canine friends) will love our off-leash beaches, including Currimundi Beach, Buddina Beach, Wurtulla Beach, Sunshine Beach, Marcus Beach and Mudjimba Beach.
Some less frequented beaches are at Mudjimba, Marcoola, Warana, and Buddina.
Naturalists head for the quiet beaches hidden throughout Noosa National Park, with Alexandria Bay a popular nudist or 'clothes optional' beach, where you can work on an all-over tan.
The long walk from Sunshine Beach to Noosa National Park is one of the best in the world.
For an action-packed 4WD adventure along some of Australia's most famous sandy stretches, explore the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach or catch the vehicular ferry over to Fraser Island.
