There are three main settlements along the beach at Sunshine Beach, Peregian Beach and the larger Coolum Beach. Sunshine Beach (1539A) is primarily a holiday and residential area, that extends for 3 km along the beach. It has the newest surf lifesaving club, established in 1982, reflecting the newness of the development. The club is located in a grassy, bluff-top beach reserve 1.5 km south of Lion Rock. Steps and a ramp lead down to the patrolled beach.

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.
