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

When visiting the beach for a swim, only swim between the red and yellow flags at either Coolum Beach or Coolum North. Caution is strongly advised when swimming in this area.
