Mooloolaba Beach, Mooloolaba

4.8
Situated within walking distance of seafood restaurants, cafes, and shops, Mooloolaba Beach remains one of the most family-friendly beaches on the Sunshine Coast. Sheltered by low rocks from its north side and the harbor wall from the east, this long stretch of coastline provides excellent swimming conditions when the waves are low. Popular with both tourists and locals, it can get crowded at times, but you shouldn't have a problem finding a secluded spot. Our Mooloolaba tour planner makes visiting Mooloolaba Beach and other Mooloolaba attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One of the best beaches around. Very little surf, but just such a relaxed atmosphere!! Had a great walk along the beach and esplanade. Beach isn't big, and there are a few rocks at the northern end, but very little current and minor waves makes for a perfect beach to bring the kids and just relax for the day with plenty of shade, shops and playgrounds about. Worth the visit!
  • Fantastic beach to swim with lifeguards. Lifesaving club has great meals and good shopping in the main street opposite the beach
  • A gorgeous little township on the sunshine coast. Great little shops, a coastal walkway and of course the beach. Would highly recommend
  • Great beach for all ages, good for swimming also didn't seem as rough as some other surf beaches I've been to. Fairly calm on a nice sunny day without much wind, also have on site life saver's during daytime hours and flags to show you which part of the beach is the safest to swim in.
  • A great experience. Great people Great shops Great beach
