Heading through Coolum when I saw a turnoff and took it. We came across a wonderful boardwalk with lookout and a small car park. There is several seating areas and a shelter with artistic displays.

Great golden beach. Waves not too rough. Friendly informative life guards. Will definitely visit again. Picnic lunch areas, showers, toilets. Nice safe location for swimming or surfing. Good for littiles, teens or adults. Highly recommended. Plus a caravan camping site too and a skate park.

Sandy has an intuitive knowledge of where your body is knotted. After one of her massages you will feel better. You will be relaxed and ready to face whatever the world throws at you.
