Great family beach, close to the local Surf Life Saving Club... The nearby public car park is massive and well positioned to the shops, beach and playground. The playground has a couple of swings and two slides, climbing net.

Heading through Coolum when I saw a turnoff and took it. We came across a wonderful boardwalk with lookout and a small car park. There is several seating areas and a shelter with artistic displays.

Great golden beach. Waves not too rough. Friendly informative life guards. Will definitely visit again. Picnic lunch areas, showers, toilets. Nice safe location for swimming or surfing. Good for littiles, teens or adults. Highly recommended. Plus a caravan camping site too and a skate park.
