Peregian Beach is a seaside town that immediately makes you feel more relaxed and offering 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!
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, why not get involved and go to a class at the Peregian Beach Yoga Studio that offers yoga with ocean views? Soak in the views and rediscover your inner balance to mark the start of a great day.
Smack-bang in the middle of Peregian Beach and with plenty of outdoor seating, this is a local’s gem to start the day with some coffee and breakfast. All their food is homemade, and all breads, rolls and croissants are made daily fresh in-house. And if that isn’t enough to make this place so special, if you crave some delicatessen, the café also sells anything from German Knackwurst and Swiss Emmental and Appenzeller cheese to locally produced goodies like Kenilworth Cheese and Jalapeno and Chipotle jellies.
What better way is there on a hot summer day than cool down with a dip in the ocean or end your day with a leisurely stroll along a wide, sparsely populated beach such as Peregian Beach? Peregian Beach has got it all – whether you want to go for a swim, a surf, or rather enjoy some ocean views while having some beers and barbecue. Bonus: The barbecues do not only have water views, but also got a playground and skate park insight to keep the kids busy.
After all, a great souvenir from your holiday will always remind you of this time and be a conversation starter with visitors. There are dozens of lovely stores along David Low Way and Grebe Street for visitors to stroll along, 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.
What would a summer be without ice cream? Kelly’s of Peregian offer hands down the best ice cream from local 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.
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.
