Mooloolaba Beach

Mooloolaba Beach - Australia
© Jussarian

Mooloolaba Beach sits at the heart of Queensland’s aptly named Sunshine Coast. 

The pure white sands here are matched in their beauty by the crystal clear waters, which are often dotted with surfers from the Mooloolaba Surf Club. It’s bang in the middle of the beach, and you’ll find the lifeguard tower here too - it’s manned by volunteers 365 days a year, so as with most Aussie beaches, you can be assured that safety’s a big priority here

There’s plenty of space to lounge out along the sands, but there’s no shortage of activities either. Queenslanders love to stay active when they head to the beach, and you’ll find a couple of beach volleyball courts near the lifeguard tower. 

On the dining front, there are loads of places to grab food and drink from near the beach, including lots of well-known chains, and some more individual bars too.

You’ll also find tourist attractions like the SEA LIFE Centre and a lot of seaside boutiques close to the beach.

Undoubtedly the quirkiest feature at Mooloolaba Beach though, and the one that proves it doesn’t take itself too seriously, is its “Loo With a View”. That’s right - you can even soak up the sweeping sea and sand views while using the toilet.

And in case you were in any doubt about this beach’s credentials, it frequently features in lists of Australia’s top 10, most recently bagging a 4th place finish in TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travellers Choice Awards.
