Maroocydore beach is beautifully located near the mouth of the Maroochy River. It’s an open beach, unprotected by headlands so is affected by rips. It’s always advised to swim between the red and yellow flags. It’s a great family beach with relatively easy parking and...More

This beach is okay but definitely not the prettiest beach. It is always windy at the beach so it’s not super enjoyable. Not as packed with people as Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba beaches which is a good thing. It’s a bit easier to find parking...More

A lovely stroll down the beach from Rovera Apartments and having the SLS patrol there is a bonus. Go there!

Like most of the Sunshine Coast beaches there is plenty of sand to sit on as well of lots of patrolled areas. The surf can be great but all depends on the wind. This is a popular beach for families.

The Maroochydore beach has white sand and Crystal Blue as your water that looks like someone painted it that color. The waves were strong and that good salt water will cure any scratch on you.

Another great example of our beautiful Sunny Coast north beaches. The water was crystal clear and sand bright. The huge bank of giant sand bags to the north of the surf club provide an interesting place to walk too as well.

We swim here most days: the size of the beach gives the lifesavers more choices for safe flag options. The beach is always clean and the surf club is brilliant. The only down side is parking is a problem at the weekend...as it is all...More
