Coolum Beach (1539E) occupies the southern 2 km of the beach, with small Stumer Creek and a few rocks in the surf defining the northern end of this part of the beach. The main Caloundra-Noosa Road passes just behind the beach, which is backed by a large reserve containing a caravan park, as well as the surf lifesaving club at the southern end, close by the rocks of Point Perry. All facilities are available in the adjoining shopping area. This is the traditional surfing beach with the surf lifesaving club formed in 1919. Wave height decreases slightly toward the point, however rips still dominated the surf .

Swimming

Swimming anywhere along the beach is relatively hazardous owing to the persistent strong rips, the deep longshore trough and larger rips further offshore. You should only swim at the four patrolled beaches. Stay between the flags and well clear of the rips.

Surfing

There are numerous beach breaks the length of the beach, with best conditions at high tide on a moderate swell.

Fishing

The rips produce good holes the length of the beach, with the deep longshore trough also accessible with a long cast.

General

A long beach offering plenty of surf and a range of settlements and facilities.
