Coolum Beach Resort and golf course backs the next 2 km of beach (1543B) (Fig. 4.115). The resort provides an access track and a lifeguard patrolling the beach daily from November to June. There are rips every 200 to 300 m so ensure you swim in the patrolled area.

Swimming

This is a long, potentially hazardous beach with persistent rips and strong currents. You should only swim in the surf at the patrolled Marcoola Beach, or under the supervision of the lifeguards at Coolum and Twin Waters resorts. Always check for rips before entering, stay on the attached inner bar and clear of the rip channels and deeper outer trough.

Surfing

There are beach breaks the length of the beach, with better banks usually at Point Arkwright. Best conditions are produced by a moderate swell and westerly winds on a high tide. If you have a boat, there is a good left point break on Mudjimba Island.

Fishing

There is excellent beach fishing in the numerous rip gutters, together with somewhat more hazardous rock fishing at Point Arkwright and the river mouth south of Twin Waters.

General

A long, relatively natural beach offering a range of facilities, including three resorts. Take care if swimming as it is dominated by rips.
