Its a lovely quiet beach and has some good waves from time to time, was not at all busy. There's a surf life guard on duty in locations good for swimming.

A very long and clean beach. Friendly life guard. Not very many people when we were there. Truly recommended for swimming, surfing or just a long walk.

Its great spot, surf is somewhat unpredictable, but the life savers make sure all is well controlled and safe. Play areas near by for younger kids, Bulli and Little Boat Espresso for Breakfast and lunch are just there.

This is a lovely open beach great for walking, jogging swimming and surfing if the waves are good. The beach is patrolled.

Beautiful beach only a short pathway from resort. Lifesavers & flagged areas for safe swimming and lovely for long walks. Get up early & take a beautiful sunrise photo, it's worth it

We normally stay at Coolum, but decided to try Marcoola. As the population is less, there is more of the beach to yourself...
