Alexandria Bay

Noosa Heads, Noosa Area
You’ll find this dramatic sweep of golden sand and sparkling surf between Hells Gates and Devils Kitchen in Noosa National Park. It’s a three kilometre scenic hike to reach “A-Bay” (as the locals call it) and the beach’s isolation made it (until recently) a hotspot for those who enjoyed getting back to nature wearing nothing more than sunscreen.
