4.8
#1 of 11 in Beaches in Sunshine Coast
Noosa Heads' main attractions are its beaches. Noosa Main Beach and its small bays are popular surfing locations well known on the world surfing circuits. Local artists often create large sand sculptures, such as medieval castles and dragons, on the beach's wide strip of white sand. This beach has lifeguards on duty daily, and flags bouncing on top of the water clearly mark a safe swimming zone. Several snack vendors operate on the sand, none more popular than the iconic "Hey Bill." To visit Noosa Main Beach on your trip to Noosa, use our Noosa trip itinerary planner .

  • This is a busy beach, it is life guard patrolled. Shops etc are close by along with the surf club. Good for families, beach does get closed if it gets too windy as the waves get big.  more »
  • This beach, for the time we have been visiting it over the last 11 years, is very second rate as compared to the Mooloolaba beach. It is not a surfing beach.  more »
  • Just behind Hastings Street is the fantastic and expansive beach of Noosa. Clean soft sand and safe a short stroll to the shops and restaurants and the shade of the main street in Noosa.  more »
