There are a few north facing beaches on the east coast of Australia and this is one of them. Most beaches face east but the odd one is tucked away behind a headland and face north. Noosa main beach is one, another is Clarkes Beach at Byron Bay.
These beaches are protected from prevailing southerly winds and so are a calm sanctuary in the average weather conditions. A great place for a protected swim/surf. They also get the best aspect for the sun.
The waves tend to be smaller than the easterly facing beaches but often have great form as they curl around the headlands.
In northerly windy days you naturally get exposed and bluebottles can be an issue. These days are a rarity.
Noosa beach is great, you can sit on the sand or the grassy area adjacent to the boardwalk. Some of the hotels that back onto it have take away coffee options [Sails in particular at the national park end has a nice coffee] or jump onto the parallel Hastings street for an ice cream or meal etc.
Also take the time to walk the coastal track up through the national park with it's secluded beaches and magnificent scenery. You will almost always spot some dolphins if you look.
