Maroochydore beach (1545A) is patrolled by the Maroochydore Surf Life Saving Club. This is one of the oldest in Queensland, having been founded on New Years Day in 1916. The club is located at the end of the main street and there is a large car park adjacent to the club house, with a fenced foredune backing the beach. Rips are common along the beach, so stay in the patrolled area. The entire beach faces east-north-east and receives waves averaging 1 m at Maroochydore, decreasing slightly toward Alexandra Headland. These produce a single bar along the beach that is cut by rips every 200 m. During and following big seas the bar may detach from the beach, forming a continuous trough that feeds the rips.
Beach Length: 0.002km
General Hazard Rating: 5/11
