There were a lot of sea lice while we were there which made swimming unpleasant so we had to swim in the resort pool instead!!

Plenty of space to get your own spit, lifeguards and good swimming as gentle waves. For surfing we headed up a bit further north too. Very close to the centre.

This beach is what comes to mind when one thinks of iconic Australia.... I'm so glad we were able to experience it twice during our recent vacation to the land down under. White sand stretching on for kms... warm, blue water..... busy, but not too busy... a lovely way to spend a day... but wear LOTS of sunscreen!!!!

Best times to be on Main beach is when there are Southerly winds and all the open beaches are too rough. It is very shelter and reasonably safe seeming here. Also lots of good cafés the surf club and it is just a delightful beach. There is nothing that comes close to the beauty and quality of this beach at... More

Great beach in a lovely bay, overlooked on one side by hilly rainforest. The board walk is just terrific, initially past condos then it winds its way through bush to the point where the Noosa river meets the sea. A truly magical experience. Go there , it's worth the expenditure.

Very well organised surf beach. Lifesavers on patrol. Very handy to Noosa's main street shopping. Almost impossible to find parking nearby.

This is a lovely beach ( even on the back of returning from the Big island in Hawaii!). Mornings are less windy, swim at 5 am when the sea is calm and fewer people are around. The surf gets up a bit during the day but always fun.

Visited in November, not too busy but would be hectic in peak season. Gorgeous spot, great for kids as no big waves. Nice and close to amenities and cafes etc. Loved it!
