By most world standards, Noosa main beach is actually a pretty darn nice beach thank you very much.

Tree covered slopes at one end, the river at the other, and spitting distance to the cafes, restaurants and drinking holes of Hastings Street.

BUT...go around the corner towards the National Park, or else go around the other corner towards the river, and you get a great beach experience with far fewer people.

We have had our family holidays in Noosa for several years and just love this beach. It's great for swimming and surfing and is patrolled during the day. The temperature of the water is warm and the sand is fine and white. The boardwalk runs along the main beach and you can access the cafés and restaurants that overlook the beach. The surf lifesaving club is also accessible from the beach and has great meals. The Hastings street shopping area is only metres away, and has some excellent shops (including some irresistible ice-cream parlours). The beach and boardwalk are beautiful at night. The area is vibrant and has everything you need for a great holiday.

This is one of the world's great beaches but there are strong currents and pounding waves and if you're just swimming, as opposed to surfing, be careful not to get out of your depth. Soft, fine sand makes it a great beach to spend the day.

It has everything - great for swimming the whole year round, enjoyable just walking down the boardwalk, wonderful to sit in a café or bar just soaking up the atmosphere.
Saw a solitary dolphin last night enjoying the beach as much as all the locals and tourists.

Beautiful sand, warm clear water and perfect waves. We swam in it all day, was as warm as a bath. Close to shops and restaurants so easy to go up and get food and drinks and enjoy on the beach, was not crowded at all.
