Marcoola Beach

Marcoola Beach - Australia
© Andy Hay

Marcoola beach forms part of a long continuous stretch of sand between Maroochydore and Coolum. Pretty much always uncrowded, this is a favourite with  sunbathers, surfers and anglers looking to get a spot to themselves.

The beach here only has fairly basic facilities but is popular with families. There’s heaps of room to spread out and there are a number of BBQ and picnic areas.

Lifeguards are on duty throughout the year at Marcoola Surf Club and Discovery Beach but you should only swim between the flags as the area is known for its persistent rip currents.
