Sunshine Beach

Head to the style, ease and laid-back atmosphere that makes Sunshine Beach such a popular spot for repeat visitors to Noosa. Once known as Golden Beach, Sunshine Beach is renowned for its sand, surf and the ambiance of its stylish boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

Things to do

Things to do

Join the local café society – find a spot on a wide deck for breakfast, lunch, dinner or any time in between. Call in at a bakery, deli or general store for fresh, local produce or a snack. Order a cool beer or a tall drink and settle into a comfy couch or perch on a stool at a laidback beach bar where locals drop in on their way to the beach. Experience a superlative espresso – the organic coffee beans are roasted on-site – and spend an idle hour with a favourite magazine under a broad umbrella.

Head to the beach and pack a picnic to enjoy on the beach foreshore. The wide, open beach hosts a variety of banks for an endless, uncrowded surfing session and the beach in front of the Surf Club is patrolled year-round. After a cool dip in the ocean, try the Sunshine Beach Surf Club for spectacular ocean views as well as great eating and drinking at the award-winning restaurant.

And if you haven’t had enough shopping, you’ll find boutiques stocking beach wear, fashion and homewares.
