7 things to do on your Peregian Beach holiday

19 Feb 2021

Peregian Beach is a quaint seaside town, located just a ten-minute drive from Noosa, that envelopes you in relaxation and gives you a real glimpse into the life of locals that call this community-minded haven their home. Leave your car at home for today, because it is time to explore everything that beautiful Peregian Beach has to offer!

Yoga with a view

Someone wiser than us once said “Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists”. So if you never have tried Yoga, or want to reconnect and relax, or simply want the company of like-minded people, get involved with a class at the Peregian Beach Yoga Studio, and enjoy your yoga with a side of ocean views. Soak in the views and rediscover your inner balance to mark the start of a great day.

Get your caffeine kick at the Baked Poetry Café

Smack-bang in the middle of Peregian Beach and with plenty of outdoor seating, this local gem will get your day started right, with great coffee and breakfast. All their food is homemade, and all breads, rolls and croissants are made fresh in-house daily. And if that isn’t enough to convince you, the café also sells anything from German Knackwurst and Swiss Emmental and Appenzeller cheeses, to locally produced goodies like Kenilworth Cheese and Jalapeno and Chipotle jellies.

Breathe in the ocean air

What better way is there to end a hot summer day than with a cool-down dip in the ocean, or with a leisurely stroll along a wide, sparsely populated beach. Peregian Beach has got it all – whether you're in the mood for a swim, a surf, or rather just enjoy some ocean views while having some beers and barbecue. Bonus: The barbecues not only have water views, but also have a playground and skate park in sight, to keep the kids busy.

Find some unique keepsakes

After all, a great souvenir from your holiday will always serve as a great memento and conversation starter. There are dozens of lovely stores along David Low Way and Grebe Street for visitors to meander through, but we highly recommend checking out Finders Keepers on David Low Way and The Romantic on Grebe Street for some serious shopping. How about a unique Peregian candle jar, or rather some locally made self-care products, scents and creams? Another hidden gem for unique souvenirs is the local bookstore Annie’s Books on Peregian that sells art prints from local artist Pete Goodlet.

Satisfy your sweet tooth

What would a summer be without ice cream? Kelly's of Peregian serve what is hands down the best local ice cream, from award-winning Italian ice cream maker Gelato Mio in nearby Coolum Beach. Best of all, their artesian gelato supports local producers by sourcing local ingredients and is free of artificial ingredients, colourings, flavourings and chemicals, leaving only real ice cream goodness and real flavours.

Put your feet up and enjoy a cold one

The Captain’s Daughter is a casual bar AND fish and chip shop with a great weekday happy hour on beers, wines and cocktails from 4-6pm that will get those holiday vibes flowing. And if you get hungry, burgers named ‘Walk the Plank’ and ‘Captains Booty Burger’ seem a memorable pick.
