“Crowded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I loved Noosa Beach but be ready for a long walk as parking close to the beach is almost impossible. A Mal comp was on this week so it was extremely busy but a lot of fun. We had an extra bonus of seeing a Koala in a tree at the beach car park. We actually had lunch at the Noosa Surf Club on the beach and that really topped off a great day.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We visit Noosa at least annually and just love it. Great beaches: Noosa main beach is gorgeous - can be a bit busier for oz; Sunshine beach around the corner in the next cove is amazing and we've seen whales there too in September - Wow! Really close to shore. Love the boutique shops and cafes on Hastings Street- very European feel but with warm, QLD heat and very laid back- but, sophisticated feel. Noosaville and river also lovely and I love swimming in the river. Lots to do, swim, surf, run, walk, river trips, paddle board etc. Or, simply while away your time reading the paper over a coffee / breakfast and watch the world go by. You can do a fab day trip to Fraser Island from here and we've also flown to Lady Elliott Island on the Great Barrier Reef ( see my review on this). Love this place. Ps the Jazz Festival is a must if you're there in September; perfect setting and lots of jazz venues dotted along the beach, restaurants, bars and cafes and all along the river too. Did I mention all the fantastic restaurants and cafes; far too many to review!!

“i thought i didn't care for beaches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

great atmosphere and friendly people. awesome surf and i was there during the comp and festival so it was all happening. tide was really really strong, i suppose that depends on when you go- could always just nap if you're not up for a swim! (the water's not too clear at all)

“Beach Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great restaurants along the wide walkway with the beach a few steps away. Pristine white Sand with plenty of personal space. Beautiful apartments facing the beach would be the ultimate place to stay
