Best Beaches on the Sunshine Coast That Must Be Explored – Fun in the sun

Considering treating yourself to a relaxing holiday in the sun, sand and surf in the blissful beach town of Sunshine Coast? Then here is a lineup of some of the best beaches that you definitely should not miss out on.


Mooloolaba Beach

Having recently been voted the fourth best beach in Australia, Mooloolaba Beach is easily the most family-friendly and safest beach in the land down under. A boardwalk follows the ocean all the way to the Mooloolaba Spit and offers shelter water swimming along with an excellent range of seafood cafes. Consider making your way to the Mooloolaba Esplanade, where you will find a fantastic selection of fashion boutiques, restaurants, juice bars, cafes and more.


Kings Beach

Boasting a rather energetic vibe, Kings Beach is certainly all about the fun. Here you can explore rock pools, people watch swimming the oceanfront saltwater pool or simply enjoy a picnic on the sandy beach. With its rolling surf and protected swimming areas, Kings Beach draws in a lot of surfers and swimmers keen on spending time in the water. Additionally one can find plenty of playgrounds, beachside parks, restaurants and cafes to enjoy. It's also easily reachable from many Alexandra Headlands hotel options including the likes of Oaks Sunshine Coast Seaforth Resort with relative ease.


Sunshine Beach Noosa

Just a stone's throw south of the Noosa National Park, this beach lays claim to a very peaceful village feel. With reliable waves, plenty of beach houses for rent and best of all, a year-round surf, Sunshine Beach Noosa is a gem waiting to be discovered. One can also find numerous cafes, restaurants and shops to visit. To take a break from the dining, shopping and swimming, make your way to the groves of pandanus palms and enjoy a quiet moment of reflection.


Alexandra Headland

If you're looking for a rather laid-back coastal town for an extended holiday, then Alexandra Headland is it. With its long curving white sand surf beach and a beautiful headland ideal for long walks with complementing panoramic views, Alex as it's affectionately called by the locals is quite possible the perfect holiday spot. The beach is a lifeguard patrolled year round and is quite safe for swimming, with a consistent surf break along the headland. Additionally there is an outdoor skate park to explore as well. Alexandra Headland is also just a short stroll to the vibrant and bustling townships of Mooloolaba and Maroochydore.


Bulcock Beach

A particular favourite for beach weddings, parties and get-togethers, Bulcock Beach overlooks the stunning blue waters and sandy banks to the northern end of Bribie Island. And there is plenty to see and do! Kayak, paddleboard or sail to your heart's content in the calm and serene Pumicestone Passage. Alternatively enjoy a spot of fishing or explore the waterside boardwalk home to esplanade style restaurants and cafes serving some fantastic seafood dishes.
