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 .
