The Sunshine Coast is framed by 100 kilometres of pristine coastline dotted with family-friendly, pet-friendly, surf, calm and relaxed beaches. Grab your towel, swimsuit and sunscreen and find your spot on the sand to savour the sun on your skin and salt in your hair.
Make like the locals and choose your patch along the coastline. The tourist favourite, Sunshine Beach, boasts an expansive stretch of white-sand adjacent to Noosa National Park. For somewhere a little less crowded head to Peregian Beach, fringed with white sand dunes and striking blue water.
Mooloolaba is home to the largest trawling fleet in the region and a favourite anchorage for ocean cruisers and leisure boats. Alexandra Headland is a great place to find a perfectly peeling wave if you're keen to go for a surf while you're in town.
Home to a kid-friendly aquatic playground and oceanfront saltwater swimming pools, Kings Beach tops many of the 'best beach' lists due to its gentle currents and protected swimming areas.
