Mooloolaba Beach, Mooloolaba

4.8
Situated within walking distance of seafood restaurants, cafes, and shops, Mooloolaba Beach remains one of the most family-friendly beaches on the Sunshine Coast. Sheltered by low rocks from its north side and the harbor wall from the east, this long stretch of coastline provides excellent swimming conditions when the waves are low. Popular with both tourists and locals, it can get crowded at times, but you shouldn't have a problem finding a secluded spot. Our Mooloolaba tour planner makes visiting Mooloolaba Beach and other Mooloolaba attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great beach on the Sunshine Coast. Awesome Surf club with unbelievable views. Trendy cafes and restaurants. My favorite seaside place on the Sunny coast!
  • Nice beach Pretty good spot, was expecting to see more waves, but maybe with the wind, swell wasn't the best. easy access to restaurants, and isn't too busy (maybe in the day we went), but good, will go more often.
  • Good place for body surfing. Nice range of cafes and shops nearby.
  • Refreshing and Excellent View Beach just across the road and very accessible. Coastline is very beautiful in the morning. There are surf club and surf school around as this is one of the surf spots in Queensland and a lot of restaurant near the beach.
  • The sand is so fine and light. The swim and don’t swim areas were clearly signed. So much room on the beach even with the number of people there. Very clean. Also, great free BBQ facilities. I only wish we had something like this in Canada!
